Something awesome is brewing at the iHub. Ever wondered how to communicate securely or how to safely store your data/information? Well then this event is for you. The iHub community is organising a CryptoParty on Tuesday 15 April from 4 pm to 8pm.

What is a CryptoParty?

CryptoParty is a decentralised, global initiative to introduce the most basic cryptography software and the fundamental concepts of their operation to the general public, such as the Tor anonymity network, public key encryption (PGP/GPG), and OTR (Off The Record messaging). CryptoParties are loads of fun, free to attend, public, and commercially and politically non-aligned.
