Speaker: Khaleesi

In this Console Talk, we introduce the audience to the Chaos Computer Club. Although it was founded over 40 Years ago and has been fighting for the promotion of privacy, freedom of information, and many other digital rights, its values are vastly unknown to many activists in the privacy scene. Beyond that, we shed light on the issue of biometric mass surveillance, both theoretically and through a practical/ technical lens. Since ideas regarding the collection and use of biometric data came around, we’ve been telling politicians that biometric data is always a ticking time bomb. After several years of hacking biometric systems, we have been able to prove it repeatedly.
