Events and Classes

Full Event Listing | Unofficial Google Calendar

Not all events make it onto this calendar. Many events only make it to the Discussion or Announcements mailing lists, IRC or in person at Tuesday meetings. Best of all, Noisebridge is about people getting together at the space in San Francisco to do stuff. DO pay attention, as some events just arise organically from the bottom up!

Want to host your event at Noisebridge? We like seeing classes and talks on interesting things pertaining to various subjects of hacking. Most of all, we like seeing familiar faces. Please participate in the space and our weekly Tuesday meetings to see if we're the right audience for what you want to share before announcing a new event. Additionally, please see our events hosting page for suggestions on how to use Noisebridge for your event/class/workshop.

Upcoming Events edit


Wednesday, July 27, 18:30: Basic Income Wikipedia Jam,
This will be a small gathering of folks working together to clean up the Wikipedia page for "basic income," which is a total mess right now and the first resource many people new to the idea will encounter. There are neutrality issues, citations missing, key events unmentioned, overly verbose writing, confusing organization: on and on and on. If you're into the idea of basic income, come lend a hand. We'll have snacks!


Thursday, August 4, 12:00: Post-quantum Crypto Talk by Peter Schwabe,
In 2012, Mark Ketchen, researcher at IBM, stated about large quantum computers that they are "within reach" and estimated a timespan of 10 to 15 years until such computers can be built. It is not clear if Ketchen is right with this estimate, it is not even clear if a large quantum computer will ever be built. However, what is clear is that such a computer will be able to break all asymmetric cryptography in wide use today. More specifically, it will break in polynomial time systems that are based on factoring (like RSA) and systems based on the discrete logarithm (like DSA, and Diffie-Hellman key exchange), including their elliptic-curve variants. There are asymmetric cryptographic systems that, as far as we know, are not broken by quantum computers, so called "post-quantum cryptography". It is obvious that once large quantum computers exist, the world will need to switch to such post-quantum schemes. However, users who are concerned about long-term security, have to switch to post-quantum schemes for confidentiality already now: an attacker who records and stores key exchanges today can go back in a decade or two and use a quantum computer to attack them. In my talk I will give a brief overview of post-quantum crypto and then highlight what we can, and should, already do today to provide long-term security in cryptographic systems. In particular, I will present the "NewHope" key exchange, which is currently used in an experiment by Google and is one of the candidates to be considered for post-quantum key exchange in Tor.
