Cryptoparty: encryption and data security for journalists

  1. 1. Cryptoparty
  2. 2. Cryptoparty CryptoParty is a decentralised, global initiative to introduce basic cryptography tools - such as the Tor anonymity network, public key encryption (PGP/GPG), and OTR (Off The Record messaging) - to the general public. The CryptoParty idea was conceived in the wake of the Australian Cybercrime Legislation Amendment Bill 2011
  3. 3. "If you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place."
  4. 4. “No system of mass surveillance has existed in any society that we know of to this point that has not been abused.” - Edward Snowden
  5. 5. “They can bypass encryption anyway, so what’s the point?” “They can spy all they like. I’ve got nothing to hide.” What’s the point?
  6. 6. “Privacy is about the autonomy, dignity, and self-determination of people — and it’s a necessary precondition for democracy.”
  7. 7. What’s the minimum we should do? ● Check that we haven’t already been compromised ● Password good practices and install password manager ● Protect yourself from tracking ● Install a VPN ● Get encrypted email ● Use an encrypted messenger ● Set up 2FA

  17. 17. Email Encryption “We looked at 2,515 Washington journalists with permanent credentials to cover Congress, and we found only 2.5 percent of them solicit end-to-end encrypted communication via their Twitter bios. That's just 62 out of all the broadcast, newspaper, wire service, and digital reporters. Just 28 list a way to reach them via Signal or another secure messaging app. Only 22 provide a PGP public key, a method that allows sources to send encrypted messages.” - Bruce Schneier - Chief Technology Officer of IBM Resilient, a fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center, and a board member of EFF.
