Cryptography has a very special place in every hacker's heart — Not the least because it allows assuring the confidentiality of information, but for several other reasons. First of all, cryptography hides an inner mathematical beauty, which is the very essence of hackdom. Second, the same tool that allows for hiding information, also allows for assuring identity beyond any reasonable doubt; in this talk we will also show why this is so important for hackers. And thirdly, we will briefly talk about "onion routing", a specific use of cryptography (a hack on it, of course) that, besides ensuring confidentiality, seeks to ensure anonymacy in this era of pervasive, permanent surveillance.

La criptografía tiene un lugar muy especial dentro del corazoncito de todo hacker — pero no únicamente porque permite asegurar la confidencialidad de la información. Primero que nada, la criptografía esconde una belleza matemática interior, esencia misma del hacker. Segundo, la misma herramienta que nos permite ocultar, también nos permite asegurar la identidad más allá de cualquier duda razonable; en esta plática veremos por qué esto resulta también fundamental para los hackers. Y en tercer lugar, hablaremos del "ruteo cebolla", un uso específico de la criptografía (un hack, claro está) que además de la confidencialidad busca asegurar el anonimato en esta era de vigilancia pervasiva y permanente.
