Sorry I can't attend, but I'll be at a Guy Gavriel Kay reading at
Kepler's Books, that evening.  But these might help:
"Zimmermann-Sassaman Protocol" on http://linuxmafia.com/kb/Security/
"GnuPG Lecture" on http://linuxmafia.com/kb/Security/

Cheers,              "Here, sanity ... niiiiiice sanity, come to daddy ... okay,
