NANOG36 PGP Key Signing
The key signing will be on Monday at 3pm in the State room. If you can't make it, feel free to submit keys as there will be a follow-up session during the Wednesday morning break. So get those keys in and I'll see you in Dallas! --msa -snip- Stickers for Your Name Badge When you stop by the registration desk at NANOG36, 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 email@example.com 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 noon on the 13th, a complete key ring with all of the submitted keys will be available at puck.nether.net/~majdi/nanog36.pgp in binary form, and as an ASCII file at puck.nether.net/~majdi/nanog36.txt. 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 Dallas! How to Extract Your Public Key to an ASCII File PGP 2.x: pgp -kxa your_email_address mykey.asc PGP 5.x: pgpk -xa your_email_address > mykey.asc GnuPG: 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: I assume the procedure is similar to the one for Windows, but cannot confirm this. Hopefully it's easy enough to figure out.
