CAD, present at FLISOL 2021!

Since 2005, the Latin American Festival of Free Software Installation - FLISOL has been held in different cities of the continent in order to spread the word about Free Software and strengthen ties with those who are part of its community. Simultaneously, volunteers in hundreds of cities share their knowledge and help people install free applications. The 2021 edition will be held on Saturday, April 24th virtually, however there are groups that organize events on other dates, even for more than one day.

Description of the talks

Privacy and Security with Free Software: Privacy is a human right subject to multiple violations in the digital world. The use of free software, combined with cryptography, improves our privacy and digital security. In this talk we will explain the importance of these, how they are being violated and the role that free software plays at the moment of protecting them.

CoyIM Secure Chat client using Tor and OTR: CoyIM is an XMPP chat client whose objective is to provide secure communications. In its default behavior, it uses Tor to secure connections to servers. The protection of the content of the messages is carried out using the OTR protocol. Additionally, with CoyIM it is easy to create anonymous accounts on public XMPP servers. At the moment, the group chat functionality is under development.

Secret and Autonomous VOICE / IP Communications with Wahay: Wahay is a free tool that allows autonomous and secure audio conferencing without the need for third-party servers or its own infrastructure. Only people who participate in a meeting can know that the meeting happened and what was said in it. For this, Wahay integrates Tor’s onion services with the Mumble audio conferencing system.
