workshop: Draw me crypto
what people think encryption looks like
This session is based on my ongoing collection of 50+ drawings from around the world representing "secure communications". I'll show some of the drawings and invite you to draw your own.
How do people represent "secure communications"? How do they represent an "adversary"? What can we learn about crypto from visual forms? This session is based on my ongoing collection of 50+ drawings from around the world representing encryption, key exchange, security flaws, surveillance, MITM and so on. I collected drawings done by a variety of folks: from high-risk activists from Ukraine, Russia, Middle East to well-know cryptographers, journalists or security experts.
I will expose some of the drawings.
I am inviting people to join the session and DRAW me how they see / feel "security" and "insecurity", how do they represent their adversaries, possible attacks, leaks and ways we can protect ourselves.
This research is part of the NEXTLEAP project.
