In the age of advertising, marketing, state surveillance and social networks, can anybody still 'disappear' ? With our activities on the Internet constantly being tracked, anonymity — using anonymous networks, encrypting e-mail content, securing connected devices, etc. — seems to have become a utopian dream.
Believing that specialists should not have a monopoly on protecting private data, Le Reset, a feminist hackerspace, will lead a workshop at BAL where participants learn how to use IT tools in order to secure their digital environment.
Presentation and discussion aounrd the surveillance of online communications. How does it work ? Help to install and manage tools like :
-Free mail encrypting (PGP/GPG)
-Download anonymous browser (Tor/Tails)
-Disconnect a smartphone or computer from its operating system or Google services
-Manage diverse plugins (https-everywhere, privacy badger)
Which other resource exists to protect internet privacy ? Which legal recourse for the internet activism ?
Participant must bring their own device (phone, computer or tablet). The workshop is open to everybody. No IT skills required.
Reset is a parisian feminist hackerspace which organizes workshops and conferences to share their numerical knowledge.
