Have something you would like to present, but don’t have enough material for a full talk? Here’s your chance. Talk about anything Linux related.
Bring your hardware to get help with it or just to show it off.
GPG Key Signing Party:
The point of this is to create a web of trust. By signing someone’s public key, you state that you have checked that the person that uses a certain keypair, is who he says he is and really is in control of the private key. This way a complete network of people who trust each other can be created. This network is called the Strongly connected set. Information about it can be found at http://pgp.cs.uu.nl/
Before the meeting:
Create a GPG keypair, upload your public key to a keyserver, print out the fingerprint, mail it to me (email@example.com) and bring copies to the meeting.
- Generate a public/private keypair with the
gpg --gen-keycommand (accept the defaults), see
man gpgfor more info.
- Upload your key to a keyserver:
gpg --send-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com
- Print out the key “fingerprint” with
gpg --fingerprintAlso include your full name, email address, and Key ID#. Bring this to the meeting, and optionally make extra copies to hand out.
- Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the fingerprint, email, full name, and Key ID. I’ll have a list of everyone’s info to hand out.
During the meeting:
Verify your GPG key fingerprint on the list I hand out and verify your identity (with photo ID).
After the meeting:
Download the keys for the fingerprints verified at the meeting, add them to your keyring, sign them, and upload your key again.
