Link to session in the Concentra system

"In cryptography, a key signing party is an event at which people present their PGP-compatible keys to others in person, who, if they are confident the key actually belongs to the person who claims it, digitally sign the PGP certificate containing that public key and the person's name, etc. This is one way to strengthen the web of trust." 1

Participants will hold an 'ad hoc' 2 key signing party in order to strengthen the web of trust through the verification of each individual's cryptographic key and proof of identity.

All participants should bring:
(a) multiple copies of the fingerprint of their key
(b) valid photo iD: a drivers licence, a passport, etc.
(c) a writing implement

Please see 'After The Event' at 2 for information on what to do after the event.
