This cryptoparty is already over! 

For most recent information, check: India and Bangalore

Another cryptoparty in Bangalore is planned for mid August

“Organise organically and chaotically. Have no clear leadership. Urge people to take on a leadership role.”


Learn to secure your online communication!
Attend a Cryptoparty in Bangalore!

Governments around the world are greatly increasing their surveillance of the Internet. Alongside a loss of the private sphere, this also represents a clear danger to basic civil liberties. The good news is that we already have the solution. Encrypting communications makes it very hard, if not entirely impossible, for others to eavesdrop on our conversations. The bad news is that crypto is largely ignored by the general public, partly because they don't know about it, and partly because even if they do, it seems too much trouble to implement. (Text stolen here)

So let's go and have a party, and teach each other how to use crypto!


Sunday, 30th of June, 4 PM until.. (“open end”, go home whenever you want to)

Next: sometime in August


Indira Nagar, Bangalore Centre for Internet and Society, (Domlur 2nd stage)


Everyone is invited! Do not hesitate to join, even (or especially) if you don't use crypto at all. Don't forget to bring your Laptop and/or smartphone!
