The Fifth HOPE (2004): "The Cryptophone" (Download)

  • 099

Friday, July 9, 2004: 6:00 pm (Area "A"): Trying to keep government out of everyone's phone calls is a lost battle. What little legislation we had to protect us will be removed in the next few years and ignored until then. Storing the content of all phone calls forever is now affordable, even for smaller countries. Strong end-to-end cryptography on a massive scale is the only answer. But where are the phones? CryptoPhone makes a phone based on a commercially available PDA/phone that features an open protocol and published source code. And there's a free Windows client if you don't want to buy the phone! The talk will outline precisely how it works, what's next, and how you can help.
