PLUG is hosting a CryptoParty!

Show up on Thursday May 11th to get help securing your mobile and desktop electronics.

A CryptoParty is a global, decentralized, grass-root movement to help people protect their privacy.

The Phoenix Linux Users Group (PLUG) will have labs to help you setup things like secure messaging with Signal, VPN, TOR, a password manager and multi-factor authentication.

A CryptoParty relies on two resources. 1) people with the knowledge and desire to lead a lab; 2) people who want to take the lab and improve their security.


We have a list of potential topics thus far, so we the first covered. We have a survey up, so people can indicate that they are interested in a particular topic.

The survey will be disabled the night before the meeting, so please take it now if you will attend the meeting and want to have a particular lab.
If you would like to offer a new topic or lead a lab on one of the listed topics please contact us via the PLUG-discuss mailing list, PLUG IRC channel or one of our social media accounts ( Google+ and Meetup ).

PLUG’s east side meeting is the second Thursday of the month starting at 19:00. Doors open at 18:30 for some pre-meeting socializing.

The CryptoParty is Thursday, 2017May11 @ 19:00 and will be held at the Desert Breeze Substation, 251 North Desert Breeze Blvd, Chandler, AZ 85226.
