Talk:PGP Keysigning

From Chaos Communication Camp 2007

Jump to: navigation, search

My experience shows that a party with over 50 attendees is not as effective as one might think, for two reasons

  • a) You dont want large gatherings to be exposed to the public web of trust. there are several publications about this topic and i dont want to propose anything here
  • b) the work involved includes a large amount of time doing nothing or walking dedicatedly around
    • Instead of a large party i'd rather suggest some button or something which tells other participants that one is willing to sign and/or be signed.
    • this (ofcourse) requires some social networking too - which is -based on point of view- a good or bad thing. ;-)

I agree with the above, I rather have that folks hop by, have a little chat as then you have a bit of a trust value. This also helps with the whole social aspect of actually doing these kinds of camps, and having a beer (or a cranberry vodka as I don't drink beer :) is then much better. The list on the page can be used to know which people are willing to do key signings, that is all. I'll add a little link to this discussion from the main page so that others see it too.
"Group signings" are good though for bootstrapping new keys of people who are just joining and are starting out.

If requests for keysigning time can be expressed, on Thursday or Friday please? --Avs 09:11, 10 July 2007 (CEST)

Best thing, as I noted above, is to bump into people, have a little chat with them, so that you trust them and know them a bit, and then sign.
