This year like all years we should have a key signing party.

This is likely to be scheduled for one of the slots on Tuesday.

Please submit your keys through the [https://keysigning.xyz/ following website] before Monday 1/2/2016

I will try and have printed copies of the keys on the day but it would be useful to know how many copies to have printed.

If you could send an email to [[User:Dns@dns.id.au|Daniel Sobey]] to give a rough idea on numbers.
+
  
=== When is it? ===
+
Interested?
Currently planning on running this on Tuesday night first slot. Keep an eye on [[Birds_of_a_Feather_sessions_(BoFs)]] for times.
+
  
=== Things you need to before you leave for the conference. ===
+
* Martin Krafft
* Create a gpg key!
+
* Russell Stuart
* Submit it to https://keysigning.xyz before the due date of Monday night
+
* Anthony Towns (can probably answer questions about segregated witness and lightning network)
* Bring good quality photo id.
+
* Mark Atwood
** Good quality means passport, drivers licence, proof of age card
+
* Your name here…?
** bad quality is library card etc.
+
*
** There is no "rule" as to what is acceptable quality - it is up to each individual signer to determine what is "good enough" photo ID, how closely the names should match the UID(s) on the key, etc.
+
* print out your fingerprint (not just the last 8 digits) so you can confirm that it is what you submitted
+
* Have extra copies of your fingerprint to hand out, print it on your business card if you have one.
+
  
=== At the event ===
 
Everyone will stand up the front show their photo id and read out their fingerprint.
 
This is to assert two things:
 
* The person matches the photo id
 
* The key submitted is the key they actually own.
 
* There should hopefully be printed copies of fingerprints. Cross off numbers in the fingerprint as they are read out if they match to be signed later.
 
  
=== After the event ===
+
* Not super interested in bitcoin, but are there Ethereum or namecoin users?
Sign the keys when you get home, no need to do it during the conference.
+
** Sure, I consider Ethereum to be part of (2.) above. This is about the blockchain, not just Bitcoin ;)
[https://wiki.debian.org/caff caff] is a useful tool to sign and email.
+
 
+
 
+
=== Things to remember ===
+
* The organizer could be evil, don't trust him, he has a beard.
+
* sign only the keys you have verified to your own standard, trust no one.
+
* don't trust the printouts, they could have been modified to mess with you and they could all be different.
+
* don't trust all the keys, there may be a fake key with the same email address as someone else to see who is paying attention.
+
* And remember [http://xkcd.com/364/ Responsible Behavior]

Rather than discussing the Bitcoin hype, I'd love to discuss:

  1. The current debate shaking up Bitcoin, hopefully to get a broader picture of the issues at stake;
  2. Cool stuff that is and could be done with the blockchain.

Please feel free to append/amend/take-over. I just wrote the above to bootstrap…

Interested?

  • Martin Krafft
  • Russell Stuart
  • Anthony Towns (can probably answer questions about segregated witness and lightning network)
  • Mark Atwood
  • Your name here…?


  • Not super interested in bitcoin, but are there Ethereum or namecoin users?
    • Sure, I consider Ethereum to be part of (2.) above. This is about the blockchain, not just Bitcoin ;)
