The Circle of HOPE (2018): "Autocrypt: End-to-End Encrypted Email for Everyone" (Download)
Sunday, July 22, 2018: 10:00 am (Ritchie): Autocrypt is a user-centered, developer-driven effort to make a set of standards that support convenient, usable, easily-adoptable end-to-end encrypted email. With multiple email programs participating, they aim to make interoperable tools that actual humans can easily use. Compared with existing email encryption schemes, Autocrypt involves a number of minor heresies, all aimed at simplicity of user experience and avoiding surprising failure modes. This talk will explain the differences between Autocrypt and other schemes, highlight the state-of-the-art (including some demonstrations), and talk about what comes next and how to get involved as a user, a trainer, or a developer.
