## [edit] What is Crypto Cnight?

Every Friday night, 6pm onwards! A cryptography teaching & learning session at Noisebridge, run by participants. Probably will have some kind of hands on component, too.

Bonus points for tweed coats and bubble pipes.

## [edit] Topics

Please list topics here you want to cover.

Peter is interested in:

- Some history of cryptography in the 20th century (those who... history... repeat it... etc)
- Some general review of common cryptosystems (I'm familiar with some, but there are many...)
- What makes a good S box?
- Hands on examples of differential and linear cryptanalysis?
- I'd be into trying to give a talk on ECC, as that would motivate me to really sitting down and figuring that shit out.

Jonathan is interested in:

- cryptographic protocols
- randomness and it's real world implementations. For instance how good are the generators on smart cards?

## [edit] People and Backgrounds

If you are interested, leave your name here. Please also indicate roughly the background you have in 0) crypto, 1) mathematics, and 2) programming.

- DavidMolnar, graduate level in crypto, ok but spotty in math, decent but not great at programming
- PeterYoungmeister, some knowledge in crypto, BA in math so decent but rusty, and almost no programming.
- erin, undergrad crypto, grad math, programming
- JonathanMoore, basic crypto knolage, not so great math, good/experienced programmer
- ian, undergrad crypto, grad math (but rusty), experienced programmer
