PGP Key Signing at NANOG 34

Hash: SHA1

In Seattle, we are going to try to replace the single/long/tedious PGP key-signing event on Monday evening (which invariably clashes with the NSP-SEC BOF, or with dinner, or with sleep, or with accidental loss of sobriety) with a series of small key-signing parties, held in the last 10-15 minutes of every break on Monday and Tuesday.

The thinking behind this will be described in a brief presentation on Monday morning. More details can be found here:


Briefly, if you would like to participate:

1. Paste your public key into the convenient form at <>, and

2. Visit the terminal room during one of the meeting breaks, armed with a pen, photo ID and a trusted copy of your PGP key fingerprint.

I'll be printing out one set of fingerprint sheets per day, so make sure your key is submitted the day before the key signing party you plan to attend.

If you don't know much about PGP, and you'd like to participate, try to plan to attend a key signing party on Monday in order to get a feel for what is going on -- it should then be straightforward to hook up with someone who can help you install/configure PGP software, and you can then plan to attend one of the key-signing parties the following day.

I will attend all the parties, and will sign every key I can verify, and will hence act as a trust-bridge between individual key signing parties. It would be excellent if one or two other people who have enthusiasm for useful PGP deployment could find the time to do the same. Drop me a note off-list if you're interested in helping out.
