BoF (Birds of a Feather)
PGP key signing BoF
Tuesday 27 February 2007, 18:00-19:00
Chair: George Michaelson
To participate in this key signing party:
- Go to the following page: http://www.biglumber.com/x/web?ev=86267
- Bring photo ID
and add your PGP public key to the ring in ascii-armored form.
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-----".
Before you set off to the APNIC key signing party, remember two things:
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, etc.
Bring a trusted copy of your PGP key fingerprint.
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 it with you.
The precise procedure we use at the key signing party will depend on how many keys are uploaded in the coming weeks; if there is a small number we can read signatures aloud. If there are more, we may try Len Sassaman's efficient key signing method:

Chair: Stephen Kent
This BoF will include presentations updating the status of work on the PKI to issue resource certificates (i.e. certificates that attest to the holding of IP address space and autonomous system numbers).
Geoff Huston will deliver a progress update on the PKI development efforts undertaken by the RIRs, concentrating on the aspects of defining the interactions between issuers and subjects to align with resource allocation actions.
Stephen Kent will provide an overview of the Certificate Policy (CP) and Certificate Practice Statement (CPS) Internet Drafts that have been submitted to the SIDR WG of the IETF.
