Take the stairs or elevator to the lower level and head East, though you will quickly lose orientation. Look for room 86-01 and note that the parking garage also provides access from a level below for $6, up from $1.50 or so. :(

This presentation will walk through the use of a Yubikey 4 to hold an RSA PGP private key. Public key encryption requires protection of the private key. If control of the private key is lost, all reasoning about signatures and encryption is compromised. Storing private keys on a hard disk and processed by the PC makes the private key vulnerable to compromise. A Yubikey promises to key your private key secret. There will also be a digression during the presentation into so-called true Random Number Generators, e.g. ChaosKey and InfiniteNoise.

Many will head to the Lucky Lab at 1945 NW Quimby St. after the meeting.
