    Adam Reiser - "GNU Privacy Guard"
    Location: Davis Public Library, Blanchard Room

    GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG, or GPG), is a complete and free implementation of the OpenPGP (Pretty Good Privacy, RFC4880) standard, which allows you to encrypt and sign your data and communications (for example, email, which is often sent unencrypted, and hence can be intercepted or altered while in transit; think of unencrypted email as a postcard, and encrypted email as a letter in a sealed envelope).

    GnuGP features a versatile key management system as well as access modules for all kinds of public key directories. GnuGP is a command line tool with features for easy integration with other applications. A wealth of frontend applications and libraries are available — email clients, chat programs, GUI front-ends, etc. The Gpg4Win and GPGTools projects provide Windows and Mac OS X versions of GnuGP.

    More talk specifics coming soon...

    About the speaker:
    Adam is a UC Berkeley graduate in physics and applied mathematics, currently working as a privacy and security consultant.

    Nominations for LUGOD elected officer positions ends, and voting begins.
