Philadelphia Linux GPG Keysigning Parties

Our current procedure for keysignings is simple and allows for on-the-fly signings if people bring along printouts of their keys.

  1. Upload your key to a keyserver
  2. Print out copies of your fingerprint to give out at meeting
  3. At meeting: swap fingerprints and check identities
  4. At home: get keys from keyservers, sign keys, and send signed keys back to their owner

Matthew Rosewarne has written detailed instructions for this process:
