NANOG38 PGP Key Signing
Majdi S. Abbas
msa at phantom.latt.net
Fri Oct 6 23:06:53 UTC 2006
The key signings will be during the Monday and Tuesday morning breaks
in Director's Row 46. Please try to get those keys into me by 9pm CDT on
Sunday, however any late submissions will be accomodated as best I can.
Stickers for Your Name Badge
When you stop by the registration desk at NANOG38, there will be colored
stickers available for your name tag that indicate if you have an interest in
signing PGP keys. If people keep trying to peer with you, you've picked up the
wrong color sticker and should go back.
How the Key Signing Works
Those of you who plan to participate should email an ASCII extract of your
public key to msa at latt.net by 10:00 p.m. CST on Sunday, February 12. Please
include 'NANOG PGP KEY' in the subject, and if possible, don't send your key as
a MIME attachment. I realize that some MUAs make this difficult, and I will
attempt to fix any MIME-attached keys. Instructions for extracting your key to
an ASCII file are below.
After 9am CDT on the 9th, a complete key ring with all of the submitted keys
will be available at puck.nether.net/~majdi/nanog38.pgp in binary form, and
as an ASCII file at puck.nether.net/~majdi/nanog38.txt. These files may be
updated with any late submissions for the Tuesday signings.
Handouts with the details of each key submitted will be provided. All you should
need to bring with you is:
* Photo ID (driver's license, passport, etc.)
* Your key ID, and its fingerprint
* A pen
Thank you, and I'm looking forward to seeing you all in St. Louis!
How to Extract Your Public Key to an ASCII File
pgp -kxa your_email_address mykey.asc
pgpk -xa your_email_address > mykey.asc
gpg --export --armor your_email_address > mykey.asc
PGP on Windows:
Start the PGPkeys application, select your key in the
list, click on the Keys menu, select Export, name the resulting
file, and make sure that Include Private Keys is NOT checked.
PGP on a Mac:
If you're using GnuPG, follow the instructions above.
If you're using the commercial version, I assume the
procedure is similar to the one for Windows, but cannot
confirm this. Hopefully it's easy enough to figure out.
