Key-signing at SAGE-AU 2003: Wednesday, 6th July 2003

2003-08-18 Update: All the partipicants have signed. Examine a graph of the trust links between the keys (it's a makefile target).

2003-08-06 Update: We've just completed the keysigning. The keys I received and the makefile I used are available as keysigning.tar.gz.

There will be a PGP/GPG keysigning session at the SAGE-AU 11th Annual Conference in Hobart 2003 during the Wednesday Night Birds of a Feather sessions. It 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 this key-signing, you need to:

  1. Email your whole public key to mark.suter@member.sage-au.org.au before midnight Friday, 1st August 2003. If you do not receive my explicit acknowledgment within 24 hours, please resend your email. The following command will work for some people.
    gpg --export --armor keyid | mail -s "SAGE-AU 2003 keysigning" mark.suter@member.sage-au.org.au
    
  2. Print out your GPG fingerprint and bring it and a pen with you.
    gpg --fingerprint keyid | lpr
    
  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 mark.suter@member.sage-au.org.au address, and the I will endeavor help you.
