Are you tired of simplistic lock and key analogies which pervade most legal and policy discourse surrounding encryption? The last year has seen encryption technologies become a subject of intense discussion in courts and within the government.
In India and several other countries, there are demands to weaken encryption through backdoors and key escrow systems to facilitate easier access to information for law enforcement agencies. At the same time, encryption is also one of the few tools available to individuals to protect themselves from surveillance by Big Brother and Big Tech.
To bring greater clarity and technical rigour to the public discourse surrounding encryption, Internet Freedom Foundation is hosting a lecture on ‘Encryption Security and Privacy in the Digital Age’ by Dr. Manoj Prabhakaran on Saturday, 23rd November 2019 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM at the Constitution Club of India, New Delhi.
