Everything I always wanted to know about crypto, but never thought I'd understand

In this talk, Sasha will take you through some of the underlying design principles of modern applications of cryptography. She will talk about what they’re trying to accomplish, which parts are involved, and how to prevent and understand common vulnerabilities. This will help you to make better choices when you implement cryptography in your products, and will improve your understanding of how crypto is applied to things you already use.
