Co-chairs: Philip Smith (Cisco Systems Inc) and Hideo Ishii (Asia Global Crossing)

The Asia Pacific Operators Forum (APOPS) provides an opportunity for members of the Internet community with a shared interest to meet informally and exchange ideas.

APOPS was established as a mailing list for ISP operations engineers as early as 1996. With the growth of the Internet in the region, the first APOPS meetings were held as part of the APNIC annual members meeting in 2000.

Since then APOPS meetings have been held during the annual APRICOT conference and the mid-year APNIC meeting.

PGP key signing party

Wednesday 7 September, 18:00-19:00

Day 2 is sponsored by:

Nominum, Inc.Gold sponsor

A PGP key signing party will be held on Wednesday the 7th of September from 6pm to 7pm at Function room I.

To participate in this key signing

  1. Go to the following page:
  2. http://www.biglumber.com/x/web?ev=88493

    and add your PGP public key to the ring in ascii-armored form.

    Note:

    Consult your PGP software's documentation to find out how to generate an ASCII-armoured copy of your public key. With GnuPG you use:

    "gpg -a  - --export <your-key-id>".

    You're looking for a block of ASCII text which begins with the line:

    "-----BEGIN PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK-----".
  3. Before you set off to the APNIC Keysigning party, remember two things:

    1. Bring photo ID.
    2. Key signing is a process of representing trust, so you should be ready to provide proof of your identity to other people. Drivers licences, passports, things of that nature.

    3. bring a trusted copy of your PGP key fingerprint.
    4. This could be achieved by bringing a laptop with a trusted copy of your public key on it, or alternatively you could generate the fingerprint of your public key, write it down and bring the bit of paper with you.

The precise procedure we use at the key signing party will depend on how many keys are uploaded in the next week; if there's a small handful we can read signatures aloud -- if there are more, we may try Len Sassaman's efficient key signing method:

Son Tran (APNIC) and Sunny (APNIC)

The APNIC Secretariat is seeking feedback from the community on the ICONS website, the Internet Community Online Network Source. Built on the open source Mambo software, ICONS is a dynamic web resource which will allow the community to share information about networking topics that are affecting ISPs. The site boasts a range of features to facilitate this exchange of information, including a discussion forum, articles, documents, presentations, and relevant links.

The site will be built using the collective knowledge of the Internet community, and APNIC encourages all users to contribute to the site. In this way, the range of information available to everyone will grow based on the collective needs and knowledge of the community. You can contribute by becoming a registered user, which will allow you to participate in the discussion forum, post articles, upload useful documents such as training materials, or simply add to the collection of useful links. You do not have to register to view the site or download the material available.

Over time, ICONS will grow into a valuable source of information for the Asia Pacific Internet community. This BoF session is a chance for members of the community to provide feedback on current plans and offer suggestions for further development.

The website will be available from Monday 29th of August 2005 at:
