Nick Sayer has been designing, building and manufacturing little things in his garage and selling them on Tindie since 2014. It’s an eclectic mix of stuff that’s followed his various interests as they've developed and as he has learned new things. Recently his interests have been about cryptography.
Cryptography nowadays has become more a buzzword than anything else. When your project has a need for confidentiality, integrity or authenticity assurances, then cryptography is the tool to use, but it starts with understanding what you need and picking the correct tools. It’s also important to stay on top of trends & best practices, particularly as we edge closer to the era of quantum computing, which will require a revolution in public key cryptography as it exists today.
In this Hack Chat we will discuss:
- When cryptography is needed
- Cryptography tools
- Modern best practices
