We will be holding a PGP Key signing party at Linux-Kongress 2002. We have been scheduled to meet at 18:00 on Thursday, September 5, 2002. The procedure we will use is the following:
People who wish to participate should email an ASCII extract of their PGP public key to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, August 29, 2002.
Please include a subject line of "LK 2002 PGP KEY", and please do not sign or encrypt your email.
The method of generating the ASCII extract is:
gpg --export -a my_email_address > mykey.asc (GnuPG) pgp -kxa my_email_address mykey.asc (pgp 2.6.2)
By Friday, August 30 noon (UTC), you will be able to fetch both the complete keyring with all the keys that were submitted along with a text file giving the fingerprint of each key on the ring. These files are here:
At home, verify that the fingerprint of your key in lk2002.txt is correct. Also compute the MD5 hash of lk2002.txt. One way to do this is with md5sum invoked as follows:
% md5sum lk2002.txt
Just to be sure that you have no problems with the download, here is the MD5 hash as we have calculated it:
MD5 = b8722448ea367313e2cb5b66946c81c8
Note, that this is just a hint - you must do the check yourself.
Note that you don't have to have a laptop with you; if you don't have any locally trusted computing resources during the key signing party, you can make notes on the hardcopy, and then take the hardcopy home and sign the keys later.
