On June 24th, Seoul Tech Society held an 'introduction to cryptography' event. First, Artem Lenskiy gave an overview of how symmetric and asymmetric encryption works. Followed by Joshua James with a hands-on tutorial about using GnuPG for electronic document signing and encryption. Finally, Max Goncharov talked about the new Paranoid.EMAIL service. This was all rounded out with pizza and libations.

Overall, attendees got a quick (but intense) overview of theoretical and practical encryption. We had a lot of great questions from the audience, and almost everyone left with their own GPG keypair.

For anyone who didn't make it, the presentations can be found here:
