Presented by:



As a policy associate with the Centre for Internet and Society sva has been in India for the first time in 2013. In the year of Snowden she organized multiple cryptoparties and is also a member of the cryptoparty-admin-team. Besides she is an active part with one of the oldest hacker associations in the world, the Chaos Computer Club and (co-) founded and mentored various hackspaces.

Among hackers in India she might also be known for her grounding and founding work on and Today sva continues working on the goal to have privacy by default for everyone together with the swiss p≡p foundation. She holds a diploma/master in social/cultural anthropology and computer science from Munich.

No video of the event yet, sorry!

p≡p motivates a new standard to securely encrypt and verify written communications without reinventing the wheel: p≡p eases secure communications relying on well-established end-to-end cryptographic methods by design. Following standards like OpenPGPG or OTR it integrates into existing systems for written digital communications and automating key management tasks.

p≡p's protocols automate the steps taught to users at cryptoparties, to protect their personal security and privacy by default. For easy integration of p≡p into application programming we provide very simple APIs because ultimately p≡p wants to change the default: from unencrypted, unverified and unanonymized to encrypted, verified and anonymized.

We support multiple platforms, multiple languages, multiple crypto technologies and multiple message transports. We will offer a Peer-to-Peer, End-to-End and device based secure synchronization of keys and configuration that is regularly audited Open Source and Free Software.
