Monday 20th November.

Glen Kleidon presented on encryption. The presentation included:

Glen discussed some of the different algorithms used in encryption, and a bit about the contents of a certificate.
He showed us how to create a certificate, and explained that the only difference between certificates created by a certificate authority and a certificate you create yourself is that the certificate authorities may be trusted more to establish the identity of the owner of the certificate.
He showed us how to establish encrypted communication between a NodeJS server and a Delphi client using Indy components.

The meeting was held at the Melbourne Men’s Shed, situated in the Federation Square Car Park building, off Russell St Extension.
