Encryption vs. Surveillance: who is winning the cat and mouse game?
di, 15. oktober 2013, 12:00 h - 14:30 h
Brussel - Brussel


org: Het Europese Privacy Platform

lokatie: EU Parlementsgebouw, Rue Wiertz 60 (entrance Place de Luxembourg) in Brussels.  

Recent reports have revealed that the NSA has access to encryption keys and has paid tech companies to introduce backdoors in encryption protocols. The Privacy Platform on the 15th of October is dedicated to the question whether or not (certain) encryption is worthwhile, and what is the state-of-the-art in encryption and surveillance techniques. The purpose of the meeting is to get better insight into encryption techniques and the possibilities of secret services to intercept and read encrypted messages. 


- Mrs Neelie Kroes - Vice President of the European Commission, key note speaker

- Mr Ladan Levison - founder of the now ended encrypted email service Lavabit

- Mr Jacob Appelbaum - encryption and security software developer and research journalist

- Dr James Heather - Computer security researcher at the University of Surrey (UK)
