Hi all,

Digital Security Workshop with Tor Project

Surfing the web can be risky: corporations and governments are tracking
what you do online. But, using Tor you can avoid censorship and online
surveillance. In this activity, you will learn what the Tor network is,
what’s the onion routing and how it’s different from a VPN, how to
install Tor browser and other digital secure tools. If you already use
Tor, we’re excited to learn about your experience using it, teaching and
talking about Tor.

In this workshop you will also learn about the Global South Initiative and
how you can collaborate with Tor Project. We would
like to collect UX feedback and to do UX testing with the group.
There will be another talk about SecureDrop project.

The Tor Project is a nonprofit organization based on Seattle, United
States, that advances human rights and freedoms by creating and
deploying free and open source anonymity and privacy technologies.

SecureDrop is an open source whistleblower submission system that media
organizations and NGOs can install to securely accept documents from anonymous
sources. It was originally created by the late Aaron Swartz and is now managed
by Freedom of the Press Foundation.
