What will happen in your session?

Our session is essentially a collaborative game with participants. The game is based on our “gaming” framework and aims to intuitively motivate and teach complex concepts through a set of challenges. In this case, we will focus on end-to-end encryption schemes. Participants are split into 3 or 4 teams (depending on the attendance) and aim to find the password for the locked treasure-chest that is secured in the middle of the room. All communication between participants and teams happens through bottled messages that are visible to everyone (including the opposing teams). As the teams progress through the challenges, they incrementally start to use more complex schemes, eventually reconstructing some popular schemes used in real world cryptographic applications.

What is the goal or outcome of your session?

We want to motivate the use of End-to-End Encryption (EE2E), help participants create correct mental models of E2EE tools, and introduce some common encryption schemes in practice. We use Game-based learning to increase the audience engagement, especially as Data/Communication Security and Cryptography is a complex and involved topic. During the game even non-experts will build an intuition around the topic, which will be later put in practice as the players move forward to more advanced challenges, while trying to avoid leaking data to opposing teams. During the game we will study in depth only specific schemes, but we will also provide some quick intermittent slide-breaks to skim through broader areas of application to further intrigue the audience.

@bunnybooboo
Last week, we made some updates to our session details. They appear 100% correct here: https://guidebook.com/guide/147793/event/21682603/

Do we need to push the updates anywhere else?

Well we know here at least it's fully archived. Pulled it here..

There is a treasure at the center of the galaxy and you need help. You belong to one tribe among many. But who is to be trusted? How can you communicate with your allies securely? Space is vast, but people are listening...

Our session is a collaborative game. The game aims to intuitively motivate and teach complex concepts through a set of challenges. We will focus on cryptography and secure communication schemes. All the communication between participants and teams is visible to everyone (including the opposing teams). As the teams progress through the challenges, they incrementally start to use more complex schemes, eventually reconstructing some popular ones used in real world cryptographic applications.
