In the fall of 2010 at the Open Video Conference in New York City, the Guardian Project and Witness.org hacked together an idea that would later become the Secure Smart Camera Application for the Android. This Open Source Mobile hackday "OSMob" goal is to hack on the SSC and other tools developed by the Guardian Project. Over the course of the day, the Guardian team will discuss ways to make your mobile applications more secure, including walking through open-source code and libraries it offers. For end-users, there will be walkthroughs of how to setup your phone to communicate securely, including use of Orbot, Gibberbot, Firefox with ProxyMob and other apps from https://guardianproject.info/apps.
Do to the intimate size of the venue, we are capping RSVPs at 20. (RSVP here)
