We will have a key signing party this year.
  
Given that the '''Stardome Planetarium Observatory''' is situated handily close to the University of Auckland venue for LCA2015, I thought we'd organise an Astronomy BoF again this year to complement the Astronomy Miniconf.

'''When''': Wednesday, 12:20 (during lunch)
  
Stardome has a [http://www.stardome.org.nz/whats-on/gallery-exhibits/ gallery/exhibits], and runs a [http://www.stardome.org.nz/events/the-summer-night-sky/ planetarium show on the summer night sky] at 8pm. After the planetarium show, there is [http://www.stardome.org.nz/whats-on/telescope-viewing/ telescope viewing available] which included amateur-grade telescopes in the courtyard, or the option of viewing through the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stardome_Observatory#Facilities Zeiss 0.5m telescope] for a small extra fee.

New to PGP?

OpenPGP is an end-to-end privacy protocol based on public key cryptography. Unlike X.509, the public key infrastructure used to secure the web, OpenPGP uses a "web of trust" model where individuals verify others' identity and "sign" their keys. A signature is a cryptographic assertion that a key with a given user ID (uid) is actually owned by that person.

GnuPG is a free OpenPGP implementation available for most operating systems. Check out the How-To guide to get started. If you are going to create a new key, do also check out riseup.net OpenPGP Best Practices.
