 different Debian-NYC people:

 Come learn about mobile privacy, test our software and hack your
 Android-powered phones, players, readers and tablets. The Guardian
 Project ( aims to create easy to use apps,
 open-source firmware MODs, and customized, commercial mobile phones that
 can be used and deployed around the world, by any person looking to
 protect their communications from unjust intrusion. We will be working
 on and testing apps from Guardian and other developers that provide
 features for increased privacy, anonymity and security on mobile

 The workshop will specifically cover the following topics:

 - How to browse the web anonymously and circumvent filtering and
   firewalls using Orbot (Tor for Android) and Firefox Mobile
 - Tweeting over Orbot using transparent proxying (iptables magic!)
 - Secure your SMS and mobile IM conversations using "Off the Record"
 - Make end-to-end encrypted voice calls using CSipSimple and Freeswitch

   building and booting your own firmware
