PGP Keys

PGP is one of the de-facto standards for encryption. Since January 2000, I've been using GNU Privacy Guard, the complete and free replacement for PGP.

Golden Key Campaign

I have used a few GPG Keys: 0xF2FEBB36 from until May 2002, 0x2C71D63D until January 2011 and now 0xFB1BA7E9. Please download FB1BA7E9.asc or look up my key in the "normal places" - you may find useful.

Key management is the hardest part of any cryptographic system, and PGP/GPG is no exception. Feel free to contact me to arrange verification of my fingerprint or to arrange for me to sign your key.

Please pay attention to the verifications (it's what makes the web-of-trust work). If you are not completely confident with the web of trust, read the Validating other keys on your public keyring section of the The GNU Privacy Handbook.

I have some tools to help with Key Signing Parties and have used them in the past:
