Open Source Hardware and Mesh Network for Security

Room: N-125 | Time: 10:40am - 11:00am

Imagine a world where data and connectivity are concentrated in the hands of the few. Your proprietary software, hardware, and network have backdoors. Your data is not private, and your internet access is restricted. Communicate with open-source hardware and software, and there are fewer security holes. Use a mesh network, and connectivity is in the hands of the many. We will go through the advantages, and disadvantages, of this approach, and of course there will be a live demo with our mesh RF communication devices. And we won't have to ask you to turn off your WiFi for the demo to work.
