(57 mins) Deb Nicholson, Molly de Blanc -- We want the free software movement to keep growing and one facet of successful movement building is embracing a multi-generational community. The good news is that there is no age requirement for using, promoting, and contributing to free software. The bad news is that we aren't always doing a great job of facilitating a diverse, inter-generational movement. We'll take a look at what we're currently doing to bring in young people, how we are treating...

Caitlin Kelly Henry -- Learn how the key to writing successful FOIA requests is reverse engineering agency data structures. This talk will include an overview on writing successful FOIA or Privacy Act requests, including updates from recent cases. You will learn the step by step process of drafting a request, using the FBI as an example. This talk is great for activists, students, researchers, journalists, and people with security clearances (especially after the OPM hack). Source:...

Saturday, July 23, 2016: 5:00 pm (Friedman): Managing a subversive digital library takes courage: Julian Assange is in exile and the founders of The Pirate Bay received prison sentences. How can we design a digital library without a central administrator to attack? To meet this challenge, we’ll sneak data into the Bitcoin blockchain, permanently destroy bitcoins, and build a peer-to-peer network entirely out of browsers. If we do it right, we won’t be able to take the library down even if...

Sunday, July 24, 2016: 5:00 pm (Noether): It’s rare that you see an engineer as CEO, but occasionally taking a technical idea to its logical conclusion requires the person who knows what’s going on inside the black box to take the reigns. Someone who knew everything they needed to know to start the project technologically is suddenly confronted with human problems and legal issues and paths forward that might require new types of specialized knowledge and very different gut decisions.

Friday, July 22, 2016: 7:00 pm (Noether): History is littered with techno-utopian visions, particularly those of powerful American industrialists. Henry Ford’s Fordlandia, Walt Disney’s Epcot, Peter Thiel’s Seasteading. Technologies play a recurring role in inspiring and enabling these attempts to forge or impose new governmental and/or social relations. Techno-utopian dreams are once again emerging in the form of sensor and data-driven “smart” cities and decentralized,...

As hackers, we believe that when the infrastructure fails, we must have a way to fall back to DIY methods. Medicine should not be an exception to this. Pharmaceuticals are just chemicals, chemicals are made using chemistry, and chemistry can be automated. Come learn how anyone can...

Emanating from clandestine studios and hidden transmitters, the sounds of Kreyol, Yiddish, Spanish, and Caribbean-accented English waft into the urban atmosphere. On an average night in Flatbush, Brooklyn, it's not uncommon to be able to hear as many as three dozen pirate stations between 87.9 and 107.9 Mhz. This...

Encryption works well, but only when private keys can be kept secret and ciphertext can get to its destination intact. Encrypted messages can be surveilled by acquiring private keys (FBI and Lavabit/Apple), man-in-the-middle attacks (NSA QUANTUM), or censored by blocking communication entirely (Pakistan and YouTube).

(54 mins) Matt Blaze, Sandy Clark -- For several years, law enforcement has been complaining that legal wiretaps are "going dark" (especially when encryption is used), and has been lobbying lawmakers to mandate "surveillance-friendly" technology that allows the government to break encryption and unlock devices under certain circumstances. At the same time, computer and network security is universally recognized to be in an increasingly dangerous state of peril, and...

(54 mins) asn, Nima Fatemi, David Goulet -- In the last few years, we've seen more and more interest in Tor onion services (aka Tor hidden services). They are used by press to host whistleblowing platforms, by activists who want to set up a website that authorities want to shut down, by service providers to offer more security to their users, and for tons of other uses as well. This panel will be presenting the technical aspects of Tor onion services as well as interesting use cases. As the...

(47 mins) dr_dave, r3dfish -- CAPTCHAs are the most common form of web activity security and they play an important role in regulating online activity. CAPTCHAs keep bots and "blackhats" from abusing online resources by proving a user's humanity via solving a challenge that consists of a hard AI problem. CAPTCHA development is a constantly evolving arms race with new styles and designs being created by site administrators and broken by attackers every day. In order to keep the world...

Roni Bandini -- (30 mins) Until a few months back, Argentina had a monarchy-styled government that included huge corruption, nepotism, and political violence. Néstor Kirchner was president for four years, then his wife, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, was president for the following eight years. Instead of giving press conferences, she used the official Twitter account (@CFKArgentina) to spread Goebbels-styled propaganda, send threats to the opposition, and exalt fanatics of all kinds.

In this call to arms, we’ll learn how to change up debates about secure software and fight calls for backdoors more persuasively, as well as develop a way of thinking about building and supporting tools which really serve people’s security needs. The trick? Think (and talk) about journalists. Tom Lowenthal Source:...

Sunday, July 24, 2016: 5:00 pm (Lamarr): Recent events have reminded us again of the urgent need to make encryption ubiquitous on the Internet. Yet, with the exception of Transport Layer Security, encryption remains the domain of “expert” users. Hope X (2014) was held in the immediate aftermath of the publication of the Snowden papers. In the two years since, there have been many important developments in the standards world (in particular, IEEE, IETF, W3C) that are designed to defeat mass...

(55 mins - brief drop) Fred Goldstein -- The public switched telephone network has seen better days. With interest diverted to the Internet and mobile services, the venerable PSTN that we know and love seems like it's ready for the knackers. But maybe that's not quite right. True, the dominant carriers have let their wireline networks rot, and the TDM technology that seemed so advanced two decades ago is this year's black-and-white TV set. But the PSTN has undergone many rounds of evolution,...

(47 mins) Gareth Llewellyn -- Following the Snowden revelations and with the U.K. government's revival of the Snooper's Charter legislation, Gareth was one of many people who accepted the EFF Tor challenge. Unfortunately, many U.K. ISPs' colocation providers do not appreciate Tor exits and, after several abruptly terminated servers, he decided to build his own privacy centric, non-profit ISP so he could operate Tor exits and offer Unix shells, etc. on his own terms.

Sunday, July 24, 2016: 4:00 pm (Lamarr): While Edward Snowden has revealed a lot about the NSA’s surveillance, our federal and local governments conduct a great deal of surveillance we still don’t know about. We can begin to identify what that surveillance is by identifying the empty spaces - in criminal cases, in legislation, or timelines - where such surveillance must be. This talk will attempt to point to some of the black holes in our surveillance map, both ones we know exist and the...
