I'm at Raboud Universiteit in Nijmegen this week, visiting Peter Schwabe and
the ICIS cryptography students.  Tomorrow I'll be giving a talk to the
students to explain what I work on, mostly to introduce myself so that the
students can feel more comfortable talking to "the scary gothy hacker girl"
about potential research/projects which they might work on on/for Tor.

On Friday, I'm very excited to have the opportunity to meet and have dinner
with Joan Daemen (one of the creators of the Rijndael alorithm, which is now
AES). :D

If there's anything I can pass along to folks here, such as project ideas
which might be useful to pitch to interested students, or cryptography
questions, please let me know!

> Title: "Tor Bridges: Hiding Public Resources from Nation-State
> Adversaries"
> Abstract: "After a brief overview of Tor and Tor bridges, I'll talk
> about how Tor's circuit-level cryptography allows for loose-source
> routing and how that can be used to protect Tor bridges from nation
> state adversaries seeking to discover their location.  Finally, I'll
> briefly cover the design for the new Tor bridge distribution system I'm
> currently working on which uses anonymous credentials to monitor Tor
> bridge users' behaviour, facilitating allowing well-behaved users to
> invite people in their social circle into the bridge distribution
> system, as well as causing bad actors to be locked out of the system."
> Looking forward to seeing many of you there.
> Cheers and have a nice weekend,
> Peter
