Theater of Digital Surveillance & Dark Web Treasure Hunt
$5 for nonmembers, free for members (includes light snacks and refreshments)
Theater of Digital Surveillance is a digital reenactment of the initial Snowden-Poitras communications by LA Cryptoparty, followed by a live role-play workshop in which participants will learn to establish secure lines of communication, send and receive information, and verify that the digital people they are talking to are the same as the physical ones. Dark Web Treasure Hunt is an interactive game where participants explore the Dark Web in small groups to better understand the hidden landscape. After an initial history lesson on the Dark Web and Tor, LA Cryptoparty will be your guide as you, the wayward traveler, seeks to navigate the hidden websites without the help of Google. Our main stop will be to checkout sites managed by newspapers for whistleblowers to provide tips securely.
