GPG key signing

During the summit there will be the possibility to sign each others GPG keys. If you want to have your keys signed, please take along:

  • Key printouts with the following:
    • your first name and last name
    • the e-mail addresses and other id's you would like to have signed
    • the key-id and encryption method (eg: 4096R/1A2B3C4D)
    • key fingerprint (visible with: gpg -v --fingerprint 1A2B3C4D)
  • Some official ID with photo (e.g. Passport or drivers license)

Prepared like this, it should not take more then 15 minutes to cross-sign the keys of everybody who is interested. More info can be found at: Debian Wiki on Keysigning. Some handy scripts for making mass-signing more easy can be found in the Signing party Debian package.
