PGP primer + key-sgining party

Have you ever wondered how to encrypt or sign you email messages? Have you ever tried to encrypt a file? Have you tried extending your web of trust? If yes then this talk is for you!

I will try to briefly explain how PGP works and I will show you how to use it on a daily basis.

After the talk we will have a key-signing party!

What's a key-signing party?

A key-signing party is a get-together with PGP users for the purpose of meeting other PGP users and signing each other's keys. This helps to extend the "web of trust" to a great degree.

What do I need for this party?

  1. Physical attendance
  2. Proof of identity (e.g. you ID or driving license)
  3. Your Key ID, Key type, HEX fingerprint, and Key size (you can use this paperslip generator)
  4. A pen/pencil or whatever you'd like to write with....
  5. NO computer!
