GPG/PGP Key Signing Fest and CACert SSL Extravaganza

Track: BoFs (Birds of a Feather)
Date: Monday, July 23
Time: 5:30pm - 6:30pm
Location: D137-138

Moderator: Erik Gregg


Referencing these instructions:

Things to bring:

- Lots of copies of your key fingerprint with your name, email, and information (business cards preferred)

- Photo ID. This is very important. It needs to be issued by a trustable authority (state, government). Driver's License or Passport is fine.

CACert SSL Assurance:


To be assured, bring:

- 2 forms of officially issued Photo ID (Passport and Drivers License Preferred)

- A Filled out WoT Form (you need to join CACert for this, it's free)

I personally will be there, and will be able to give at least 10 points to people. If CACert grants me temporary power assurer status for OSCON, I will be able to grant 30 points per person. It's very likely other assurers will be there as well.
