Orange County Chapter

Program, November 2004


Monday, November 8, 7-9 pm

Matt has made available a copy of his slides.

GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) is becoming a widely-popular Open Source encryption tool allowing users to create public/private key pairs. Much of that popularity is due to GnuPG's compatibility with Pretty Good Privacy (PGP), a staple of the cyber world.

At the November meeting of UUASC-OC, member Matt McKenzie will show us how GnuPG can securely exchange encrypted information and allows for secure digital signatures that help verify ownership of files and emails.

Time permitting, Matt will demonstrate the verification of digital signatures and perform various command line utilities.

Matt is a Linux/BSD enthusiast who has been involved with Open Source software since the mid 90's, and has been tinkering with computers since he could pick up a screwdriver.
