Delta.Chat: rethinking decentralized secure communication _with_ at-risk communities (ISCC CNRS)

Speakers: Ksenia Ermoshina and Holger Krekel    

Delta Chat is a decentralized secure messenger using email for transferring messages. For the last year we have been designing and testing use-cases for human rights organizations and journalists working in at-risk environments in Eastern Europe. During this session we will present Delta.Chat project, not just as another "messaging app", but as a community effort to decentralize secure messaging infrastructure in an interoperable way. Then, we will give the floor to our partner, Eugenia Andreyuk, from the Human Rights Information Center, Kyiv, Ukraine, that works on monitoring human rights violation in at-risk areas, such as Crimea and Eastern Ukraine. She will give elements of local context, risks and threat models. After we will propose to the audience to try out the app by themselves. We will wrap-up with a round of open comments.
