Join The VUC Podcast Live On Friday, May 2, To Talk TLS/SSL And The Need For “More Crypto”

Dan York
By Dan YorkDirector, Online Content

VUC logoWhy do we need “more crypto” everywhere? How can we get more people using TLS (SSL) in applications and services?     If you are interested in this topic and want to discuss it with others, please do join the “VoIP Users Conference (VUC)” conference call this Friday, May 2, 2014, at 12 noon US Eastern time.  The main guests will be Olle Johansson and Kristian Kielhofner and I will also be joining in to participate (as will typically a good number of people).  Olle just recently participated in the “MeraCrypto” day-long session sponsored in part by the Internet Society Chapter in Sweden and has also been maintaining a set of slides about why we need “MoreCrypto”.

With the recent Heartbleed vulnerability in the news (here was my view on it) there is obviously a great amount of interest in the topic of getting more TLS / SSL out there.  I’ll be on the call in part because we launched our “TLS for Applications” area out of our belief that we need more crypto out there being used.  It should be good conversation and I’m very much looking forward to it!

To join the call, you can either connect in to the Google+ Hangout at 12:00 noon US Eastern – or alternatively call in via the SIP, Skype or regular old phone numbers listed on the top of the VUC page for the episode. There is also an IRC backchannel where text chat occurs during the episodes.

If you can’t listen live, the show will be recorded and you can listen to it later.  If you can join live, please do… it should be great conversation on a very important topic!
