Tuesday 29th October, 2013:

1st Speaker:

Tony Naggs


How the NSA (maybe) spies on your web shopping, email, social and business networks


Since the recent revelations about the extent of the NSA's Internet surveillance came to light the question has been how could this possibly happen. One suggestion is that Internet (NIST or IETF) security standards have been deliberately weakened.

Specific suspicion has fallen on Dual EC DRBG, a standard random number generator. This talk will look at whether & how Dual EC DRBG could have been sabotaged, and how that could lead to weak cryptography that the NSA can crack.


the 2nd Speaker is a friend of mine, and one of the few journalists i really trust and have worked with on many occasions... he has just completed a fun project:

Steve Boggan, Freelance Journalist


Follow the money!


Two years ago, three film makers decided to follow a ten-dollar bill across America for 30 days to see where it would go. Two of them will talk about the places it took them, the people they met and how Kickstarter ensured that their film will end up on our screens...
