Although I'm generally in favor of giving crypto-parties, I'm not in favor of
helping RSA conference with anything. There has been widespread outrage in the crypto
community at RSA (the org who runs the conference), who it was revealed in March last year
was paid $10million by the NSA to prioritize the Dual_EC_DRBG random number generator in
their BSAFE crypto library. Dual_EC_DRBG was analysed by the crypto community and found
to be unsafe and possibly even backdoored.
So in short, I'm opposed to organizing anything with RSA and discourage anyone from
doing the same on ethical grounds.

Subject: [sudo-info] CryptoParty
My name is Camden Murtagh and I am with the RSA Conference, the leading
global conference in everything cyber security. It is a 5 day conference
held in San Francisco around the end of February where the leaders of the
industry come to discuss the current state of Cyber Security. I am looking
to put on a Cryptoparty during one of the nights of the conference and
after looking over your website I was wondering if you guys feel you'd be
equipped and or interested in hosting a cryptoparty at the conference. If
not would you be able to point me in the direction of someone who would be
able to help me out.
Thank you for your time.
