Cryptography Panel

09/13/94 RMIUG Meeting - Cryptography Panel

The September 13th meeting of the Rocky Mountain Internet Users Group (RMIUG) will feature a panel discussion on encryption, cryptography and privacy. A public-key encryption program called Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) was published by a Boulder resident named Philip Zimmermann. The program was released over the Internet in June 1991 as free software and has had global impact. Thousands of users worldwide are using the program, and its release over the Internet spawned investigations by the US government of violating the law forbidding the export of encryption systems. Our expert panel is made up of moderator Duane Thompson, an encryption user and privacy/encryption enthusiast, Mike Johnson, a technical expert in data compression and cryptography, and Philip Dubois, a computer lawyer representing Philip Zimmermann. The meeting will include background information on encryption, and a discussion of current issues. Attendees are invited to bring questions for the panel.

The meeting is Tuesday, September 13th from 7:00 - 9:00 pm (with optional 6:30 pm start for informal networking and refreshments). The meeting will be held at NCAR -- National Center for Atmospheric Research -- in Boulder, which is located on the west end of Table Mesa Drive, up the hill, right under the Flatirons. Park in the NCAR lot, go in the main door, and ask the guard to point you to meeting, which is held in the auditorium. There is no cost for the meeting. Thanks to Internet One of Boulder for sponsoring refreshments.

Consultants and companies are invited to bring Internet-related product information, brochures, and business cards which will be displayed on an information table.

There is close-in parking available at NCAR for the physically challenged. For detailed information about NCAR accessibility, please call NCAR at 429-3340 and talk to Facilities.

The October meeting will NOT be held on the customary second Tuesday (ie, not on Oct. 11th) due to a scheduling conflict with the room. Date of the meeting to be announced - stay tuned.
