ROUGOL logo Welcome to
RISC OS User Group Of London



ROUGOL is a not-for-profit organisation consisting of RISC OS users in London and the south-east. Our aim is to bring those users together. There is no membership fee and entry to all meetings is free. To find out more, email us.


Meetings are held on the third Monday of every month. Most meetings feature a guest speaker, demonstrating the latest hardware or software, giving tutorials of software both new and old, or simply to kick off discussions on the current hot topic. Entrance is free, so why not come along and say hello?

Next meeting - Monday 19th June 2017 
PGP Cryptography and Security - Dr Nat Queen, Birmingham University

With many recent high profile computer hacks and leaks, computer security is a current hot topic. To help guide us through this minefield we are delighted to have Dr Nat Queen from Birmingham University as our guest speaker this month.

Nat will start with general background information on how modern encryption works, in particular to explain the difference between symmetric (conventional) cryptography and public-key cryptography as used in PGP.

He will then talk about security software available for RISC OS including some programs of his own. Depending on attendee's interests, there may also be an opportunity to look at how to use PGP within your email program to sign and/or encrypt messages.
