# CrazyCryptoCnight

## What is Crypto Cnight?[edit]

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.

## Topics[edit]

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?
