In this workshop, I'll demo the latest Namecoin TLS code that's covered in my talk "Namecoin as a Decentralized Alternative to Certificate Authorities for TLS: The Next Generation". I'll also walk you through installing it on your own machine so you can try it out for yourself. Bring a GNU/Linux VM (or, if you're particularly brave, a GNU/Linux system that's not a VM), and preferably have Chromium, Firefox, and Tor Browser installed (you can choose to install only a subset of those browsers if you like).
