I've been reviewing and also implementing corona contact tracing protocols. if you're curious what i learned, come and listen.


As a response to incidents politicians like to deploy counter-measures that makes voters feel that something is being done to protect them. Be it taking away fluids at airports or deploying apps on the wealthier part of a population. Devs of course try to solve all problems with apps, leading to a happy marriage in the case of the covid19 pandemic. In the last few months there was a tsunami of contact tracing protocols, some just bad, some outright scary. I'm gonna show what contact tracing is in real live, how that translates to apps, and i'll explain a bunch of protocols how they work, how they fail, and how they can be abused.
