Edward Snowden threw 'crypto party' before blowing NSA whistle

ANI  |  Washington 

Whistleblower Edward Snowden used to teach crypto's about online privacy while he was working for the NSA.

Kevin Poulsen, a former black-hat hacker, wrote that Snowden organized a 'crypto party' along with activist Asher Wolf and Runa Sandvik, former developer for web network called Tor, the Verge reported.

Asher Wolf added that it was a huge risk for him to teach a 'crypto party' while he was working for the NSA.

However, neither of them had any suspicion about who Snowden was or his plans to expose the NSA material.
