Black Lodge Research hackerspace hosts a monthly event with two adjacent user groups: Seattle Locksport and the DC206 Meeting. Seattle Locksport’s monthly Eastside event takes place immediately before the monthly DC206 Meeting. DC206 Meeting is the monthly meetup of the Seattle-area DEF CON community. Locksport takes place 11:00-1:00. The DC206 Meeting takes place immediately after Seattle Locksport, starting at 1:00pm.

BBQ begins after the DC206 Meeting presentation ends.
This month the chef will be Hattz. We’re planning typical BBQ food, burgers, brats, chicken. We’d welcome some additional dishes, as well as some decent hard ciders and beers.

DC206 Meeting Presentation:
Title: Public Key Cryptography, How and Why Does It Work?
Abstract: A description of the non-elliptic versions of RSA and DHA followed by a primer on the branches of math involved in understanding why they function. It’s expected you know basic algebra, and what powers and logarithms are. This will be a live-coding talk where Python is used to illustrate the concepts.

Bio: I’ve been a programmer since computers captured my imagination when I was very young. Computer security and cryptography became a focus of my learning in 2003 when I worked at a very underfunded startup in the instant messaging space. 

This event will be videotaped by Panic. During event, remote users can interactively ask questions to speaker. You’ll need to sign in to Google Chat on the below Youtube URL.
