In this meeting we will learn about Virtual Private Networks, Proxies, and Tor. We will be discussing new developments on who can sell your data, how that data is gathered, and what these tools can do for you. Traffic obfuscation is not a silver bullet for anonymization. This two hour meeting will focus on providing a simplified and easy to follow explanation of online privacy, the technologies involved in masking or revealing users, and what a VPN or Tor can do for you.* Any discussion of paid services or software will be done for educational purposes only. Neither the instructor, PLUG, or any one involved in this course endorses any paid services or products discussed at this meeting.
