Zero Knowledge; Meeting the Growing Demand for Security and Privacy in a National Security World


We’re being surveilled at a massive level. Even if we trust our governments, this creates a honey-pot of information that criminals would love to get their hands on. Encryption is hard, and it’s not end-user friendly, but the tide is changing. But what if your business needs to work with the data?

This talk discusses the options for end-to-end communications encryption in web applications, as well as ways of securely and anonymously handling and distributing sensitive information between users, without allowing the raw data to give anything away.


I did not expect this talk to be about the *implementation* of a zero knowledge application and was pleasantly surprised. Boy Baukema
Wonderfully thought-provoking. I am beginning to try to plan out applications like the one that was described, so there was a lot to take a way, including from a conversation with you later in the day. Christopher Pitt
