Tags: Security Panel Cryptography

Summary : This panel will approach cryptography from the perspective of enabling a "digital world" where key social schemes are preserved - personal identity, anonymity, and the right to privacy. We'll talk about the basic inner workings of cryptosystems, and discuss how they can be applied now to create and enforce cyber rights. We'll also discuss the hurdles faced by crypto and its adopters, along with the public at large. And we'll learn just how crypto is being threatened and abused by certain global goons.
