What is a CryptoParty
CryptoParty is a decentralized, 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 free to attend, public, commercially and
politically non-aligned events.
When mass surveillance and data mining define our online
lives, privacy and data protection acquire a whole new
Citizens should be empowered to take informed decisions and
resist such surveillance.
