The Linux and Unix Users Group at Virginia Tech (VTLUUG) wishes to invite
any and all interested persons to attend a Keysigning party this Friday,
April 29th, from 11:00am to 12:30pm in McBryde 110. There will be food and
a Kindle prize provided by Qualcomm Campus Recruiting.
 
The purpose of this keysigning party is to bring bring together a meeting of
people who are interested in cryptography and/or digital privacy with the
goal of strengthening the web of trust.
 
OpenPGP is a cryptographic standard that allows for secure, confidential,
non-reputable, and verifiable communication over an otherwise untrusted
medium such as email. This only works, however, if you have some method of
verifying that the other party is indeed who they claim to be. This problem
is solved through keysigning: you are verifying first hand that the other
party's identity and key match as well as declaring this to anyone who
trusts you. These interconnected chains of verification form a web of trust
and allow secure communication between previously unacquainted or unverified
communicators.
 
If you do not already have an OpenPGP key, please acquire a client and
generate one. For the Linux and BSD operating systems, we recommend GnuPG[1]
or one of its frontends such as GPA[2] or Seahorse[3]. For Windows we
suggest Gpg4Win[4]. For OSX we suggest Mac GPG[5]. Follow the associated
documentation to generate a keypair.
 
If you wish to attend, please bring two forms of valid identification as
well as either a laptop or a copy of your key ID and your key fingerprint.
 
For more information please email [log in to unmask]

Hope to see you there,

James Schwinabart
President
Linux and Unix Users Group at Virginia Tech
