Friday, July 18, 2014: 11:00 pm (Manning): In light of the past year's NSA revelations and the long history of SIGINT, safe network use is a serious concern, especially for international travelers. Open source and commercial tools to hide one's identity when traveling will be described here, in the face of both blanket surveillance and targeted, intense monitoring. You will learn about tools which can be comfortably taken through restrictive border regimes and carried openly in war zones without attracting undue attention - as would suit a journalist or human rights worker. While these tools tend to be complex, the true challenge is the threat model: a single slip-up, undetected at the time, can doom the user and the user's contacts to discovery, interrogation, or worse.
