PGP/GPG Tutorial and Keysigning Party

When: Thursday, 2013-11-14, 5:00PM
Where: 14-232B
Facebook event

In place of a general meeting this week, come learn how to use PGP encryption to communicate securely.

We’ll explain some of the ideas behind PGP, then demonstrate using GnuPG and Enigmail to create a public/private key pair and exchange encrypted email. Finally, we can all sign each other’s keys to expand the so-called “web of trust”.

To participate, please bring:
1. A photo ID. Your Cal Poly ID or driver’s license will do.
2. A computer with Thunderbird installed and configured for your email account: http://www.getthunderbird.com/
