Key-signing at Humbug: Saturday, 1st March 2003

Update: The keys I received and the makefile I used are available as keysigning.tar.gz, as is a graph of the trust links between the keys (it's a makefile target).

There will be a PGP/GPG keysigning party at Humbug on Saturday, 1st March 2003. This keysigning party requires some advance preparation and is completely optional.

A key-signing party is a get-together with PGP users for the purpose of meeting other PGP users and signing each other's keys. This helps to extend the "web of trust" to a great degree. Also, it sometimes serves as a forum to discuss strong cryptography and related issues.

To participate in the this key-signing, you need to:

  1. Email your public key to before noon Wednesday, 26 February 2003. Not just the fingerprint, but the whole key as it currently stands. I will explicitly acknowledge all keys within 24 hours.
  2. Print out your PGP/GPG fingerprint and bring it with you.
  3. Bring sufficient photographic ID that you can prove to others that you are who you claim to be (drivers' licence, passport, etc).

This key-signing party will be run according to this GPG Key-signing HOWTO. For any questions, email and I will help you. updated by Mark Suter on 2003-03-17. Copyright | Privacy
