The Chaos Computer Club Lëtzebuerg stands with Edward Snowden! We support whistle blowing, citizen and human rights!
We deny all methods of spying, all non-objective and non-democratic assessed procedures to legalize such activities by any institution or person; as we deeply believe in privacy!
A big thanks to Courage Foundation for offering people this opportunity!
Less is more! This is pretty much our philosophy regarding cryptoPartys. We'd rather see less people attending a cryptoParty of ours and dragging off with some new knowledge and implementing it, than a big crowd going home without having gained that much of new intel.
Our latest cryptoParty / security awareness conference in Ettelbréck ended exactly like the first one described above: 15 people - so no terrible big crowd - who had learned something that evening.
Topics like Apps to secure SmartPhones, Browser alternatives, Tor and much more were part of the program.
You might want to see the presentation, read the summary of recommended tips or simply have look at some impressions from the evening, so please visit the according wiki page. ;)
Freedom of Information has always been one of our most important concerns and still is. Whether treaties are being called TAFTA, TTIP, TISA or whatever else, should and need to be negotiated in public and not behind closed doors.
Besides, we fear that a second ACTA treaty could be bootlegged in these.
As of we knew about these treaties, we demanded a full-stop of them, as it opposes every democratic and values we hold high!
Impressions from the day itself:
