One of our active members Benedikt Heintel is going to have a talk about trust: In a highly connected world like ours is trust one of the most important assets. But what if the root to trust is not trustworthy? This talk enlightens why most commercial CAs are not trustworthy by default, what we can learn from 2011’s cases like dutch DigiNotar and Malaysian DigiCert, what makes CAcert different, why CAcert is not in the browsers by default and what we do to make it happen.

Sunday 12:00 noon room Ferrer assurance party
Like previous years, participants can get assurances for their CAcert account to issue certificates valid for two years. For the assurance you will need at least one piece of official government-issued photo identification.

Acerca de CACert
CACert es una Entidad Certificadora conducida por la comunidad, que emite certificados digitales al público en general, de forma gratuita. Estos certificados, que pueden utilizarse para firmar correo electrónico, identificar sitios web o firmar aplicaciones, son similares a los que emiten otras entidades certificadoras, prestando un servicio cuyo precio rara vez es gratuito. CACert, por el contrario, emite sus certificados gratuitamente y utiliza las redes de confianza para certificar la identidad de los titulares de los certificados. Cualquier persona puede registrarse en la página web y comenzar a utilizar certificados, aunque para poder certificar su identidad en los mismos necesitará que algunos notarios de la red la verifiquen en un encuentro personal o en una fiesta de firmas.
