Key signing party to take place July, 1st, during fisl12

Security in the internet is currently one of the user's main concern. Authentication ends up being one alternative to ensure credibility to transferred data and the "key" is the identification of each person.

To improve the infra-structure and strenghten the Web of Trust, a OpenPGP key signing party will happen in July, 1st, during the 12th International Free Software Forum.

The process is about users signing each other's keys, stablishing a pact, publicly available for everybody's queries. This way, users present in the records of a given member that signs another person's key, even not knowing themselves personally, will be part of the same web of credibility.

What is it?

Keys are a cryptographic mechanism formed by a series of math formulas aiming to cypher and decypher information. To warrant that the key is indeed yours is a task for a virtual entity known as Web of Trust.

In order to participate, you must:

- Send your key to server up to 10 PM, June, 28.

- Verify if the key is correctly in place, by trying to send again.

- Wait for the list of participating keys with the hashes.

- Print the list and compute yourself the hashes, marking in the right place if they match.

- Bring to the party two id documents with photo (at least one of them emitted by a government), copy of your key's fingerprint, the printed list and a pen.
