[liberationtech] Encryption Works: How to Protect Your Privacy in the Age of NSA Surveillance

Freedom of the Press Foundation just published a whitepaper about how to
protect your communications from NSA (or any other) surveillance.

The whole thing was inspired by this Edward Snowden quote: "Encryption
works. Properly implemented strong crypto systems are one of the few
things that you can rely on. Unfortunately, endpoint security is so
terrifically weak that NSA can frequently find ways around it."

Specifically we go over:

* What crypto is and what makes it secure
* What sort of software you can trust
* Using Tor, and global adversaries
* How OTR works and how to use it right
* How PGP works and how to use it right
* How Tails can help ensure high endpoint security
