[edit] What is Crypto Cnight?

Every Friday night, 6pm onwards! A cryptography teaching & learning session at Noisebridge, run by participants. Probably will have some kind of hands on component, too.

Bonus points for tweed coats and bubble pipes.

[edit] Topics

Please list topics here you want to cover.

Peter is interested in:

  • Some history of cryptography in the 20th century (those who... history... repeat it... etc)
  • Some general review of common cryptosystems (I'm familiar with some, but there are many...)
  • What makes a good S box?
  • Hands on examples of differential and linear cryptanalysis?
  • I'd be into trying to give a talk on ECC, as that would motivate me to really sitting down and figuring that shit out.

Jonathan is interested in:

  • cryptographic protocols
  • randomness and it's real world implementations. For instance how good are the generators on smart cards?
