We should have a key signing party, up for suggestions on where and when and what format

+
 
+
== At the event ==
+
We will need someone to collate the keys and print them out.
+
Please let us know how many we should print and where to print them.
+
 
+
What we did last year was go to a lecture theatre with a projector.
+
Each person stands up, shows their photo id and read their fingerprint aloud.
+
printouts of everyone's fingerprints were provided so you can tick off as you go
+
This worked ok but took a long time to get through everyone.
+
 
+
 
+
 
+
== Ad hoc Signing ==
+
 
+
Put your fingerprint on a piece of paper and hand it out to people.
+
No need to do it formally just swap as you meet.
+
 
+
Things to watch out for:
+
* does it match thair name
+
* Does the person have a key with that fingerprint, do the numbers match.
+
* know that anyone can generate a key and claim an email address
+
* if someone can be bothered they can keep trying to generate a key with the first 8 digits the same as another key but getting the whole fingerprint is nearly impossible
+
 
+
 
+
== When you get home ==
+
after the event you should have notes of who to trust the next thing to do is sign the key.
+
You can individually sign each key, export the signature and send it to them.
+
 
+
[https://wiki.debian.org/caff caff] is a tool that automates the signing a little.
+
It will sign and send an email (encrypted if possible) containing the signature.
+
It requires some setup but it does make things easier.

Let's all get together and talk Ham Radio. Be it mucking around with FreeDV, doing some PSK or just drinking some beer and playing radios.
