Revision as of 14:23, 7 January 2015

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


  • 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.
