[Chugalug] International Assoc. for Cryptologic Research's Real World Crypto Symposium Live Stream [Youtube]

JustinMcAfee
Morning all, if you share my excitement for cryptography then this may be up your ally. 

The IACR is livestreaming their Real World Crypto Symposium on Youtube this year. 

Information about IACR is available here: https://rwc.iacr.org/
The Youtube Stream is available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajVuZyXZoak
and I'll take the chance to plug my Feb 6th cryptoparty again here: https://www.cryptoparty.in/chattanooga_tn#upcomingevents 

Interestingly, one of the first researchers to present today illustrated a significant flaw in WhatsApp's encrypted messaging app that allowed the company to insert intelligence agencies silently into encrypted group messages, giving them read access to the groups message history in an unencrypted format, as the agency would be recognized as a legitimate member of the group and be passed the necessary keys to view the conversation. Alternatively, end-to-end encryption apps Signal and Silence were unaffected.
