Internet Freedom Festival: Tool showcase

The rich schedule of the festival includes sessions on 8 different tracks and also night events. For the night events, eQualit.ie will host a tool showcase and award ceremony on Thursday 3rd March, starting from 7 pm.

THE TOOL SHOWCASE

During the showcase, 13 tools will be introduced with a short presentation to the entire room and then be assigned to their own tables for a continuing discussion with the audience. You can learn and get to see demos for Android apps carrying security advice and instructions for activists; routers and servers that enhance connection security; censorship circumvention systems; tools for encrypted communication; IMSI-catcher detectors and much more: there will be solutions for every taste and need. Here’s the complete list of the tools that will be presented at the showcase:

 

At the end of the event, the public will be invited to pick their favorite tool for the following unofficial IFF categories:

  • You did whaaaat?
  • Wish I’d thought of that!
  • You get a biscuit.

No one will leave empty handed! There are prizes for winners, drinks for participants and eQualit.ie will interview and blog about each of the contestant’s tools. And if we still have time, a vodka tasting workshop may follow!
