[http://symas.com/mdb/ LMDB] is an ultra-fast, ultra-compact key-value embedded data store developed by Symas for the OpenLDAP Project. It uses memory-mapped files, so it has the read performance of a pure in-memory database while still offering the persistence of standard disk-based databases, and is only limited to the size of the virtual address space, (it is not limited to the size of physical RAM). According to almost every benchmark, LMDB is one of the fastest key/value stores available today.

This BoF is for people to:

'''When''': Wednesday, 12:20 (during lunch)
* Talk about how they are using LMDB;
+
* Talk about their experiences using LMDB;
+
* Ask question about LMDB; and
+
* Learn about LMDB;

We will have a key signing party this year.

When: Wednesday, 12:20 (during lunch)

Where: One of the lecture theatres (TBA)

Key submission: https://frase.id.au/lca2015


Format

  • Zimmermann–Sassaman key-signing protocol
    • Ideally Sassaman-projected, if there is a document projector available (likely).
  • We will have access to printing facilities, however:
    • Supplying printed keylists to participants will require all participants to recite fingerprint in full or provide physical copies of fingerprint. If level of participation is high this could take a long time!
    • Participants could verify and print keylist themselves prior to event, but requring such preparation could exclude some participants.

Collecting keys:

  • Please submit your keys at: https://frase.id.au/lca2015
  • include the fingerprint on your wiki page? (Fraser Tweedale (talk) 12:32, 17 December 2014 (AEDT) dubious. I wouldn't sign a key without a copy/recital of fingerprint from owner or assertion that reproduction in hashed/MAC'd keylisting is correct)

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.
