Digital security: practical knowledge for online activists

A crash course on risk analysis, cryptography, and anonimity on an internet surveilled by state and capital.

We’re all aware that our online activities are monitored and profiled by both state and capital. But it is often unclear to what degree this poses a threat to you and your activist causes. In this workshop we will present you with a crash course on risk analysis, explaining how you can identify and weigh these threats. We will end the workshop with two important mitigation strategies: cryptography and anonymity, explaining the basics of how they work and showcasing some practical tools.

PUSCII

The PUSCII started as a group running a public Internet workspace in 1998 from a spare space in their squat in the center of Utrecht. From its founding, the main goal was for helping activists, fellow squatters, and just random people to use all of the then new technologies of the internet, and do so freely - that is, both at no cost, and without censorship. This served as a completely open social and public space, providing free internet access to anybody who wanted to use it, up until 2005. At this point, we had to leave the squat we had been using, and move to a new location - a new squat, directly next to the Utrecht train station. From there we continued our social function of public internet and we provided space for several hacker workshops (wireless antennae building, etc.) which we shared with equally minded people from a different social project, the "Weggeefwinkel" (Literally: Giveaway shop). In 2007 disaster struck, and we got evicted again. Several attempts have been made to lay claim on a new building, but none lasted longer then two weeks. Luckily, this did not impede us as a group and the virtual projects as well as ad-hoc irl sessions are still happening.
