NEXT MEETING                

DATE:   Monday 19th June 2017
(ROUGOL meets on the third monday of each month)
SUBJECT:   PGP Cryptography and Security
PRESENTER:   Dr Nat Queen, Birmingham University
TIME:   7:45pm (although lots of ROUGOL members are usually there - eating curry - from about 6pm!)
VENUE:   Upstairs in the restaurant at The Blue Eyed Maid public house, 173 Borough High St, SE1 1HR.

With many recent high profile computer hacks and leaks, computer security is a current hot topic. To help guide us through this minefield we are delighted to have Dr Nat Queen from Birmingham University as our guest speaker this month.

Nat will start with general background information on how modern encryption works, in particular to explain the difference between symmetric (conventional) cryptography and public-key cryptography as used in PGP.

He will then talk about security software available for RISC OS including some programs of his own. Depending on attendees interests, there may also be an opportunity to look at how to use PGP within your email program to sign and/or encrypt messages.

The usual arrangements

Admittance is free and everyone is welcome. All meetings benefit from video projection, so everyone should have a great view.

The Blue Eyed Maid is easily accessible by public transport from in and around London and the south east, and serves a wide range of hot and cold food, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

To be informed about future meetings, please join the mailing list. Everyone on the mailing list will be kept informed of these and other ROUGOL initiatives.
