 +Many members of OCLUG have an interest in cryptography and express it by having and using GPG/PGP keys.  ​

 +<!--- This section requires some rewriting and some updates. I'll have to set up a real
 +----- keysigning party and start a GPG Keyring to store here. This was the only way to 
 +----- comment out part of the page. I could have gone back through revisions, but I don't
 +----- want to forget to put the new version of this back in. -- Scott
 +
 +You can download the [[http://​oclug.on.ca/​phpwiki/​pubring.ids|list of key IDs]] and the [[http://​oclug.on.ca/​phpwiki/​pubring.asc|keyring]] from here.
 +
 +The OCLUG Web Of Trust [[http://​oclug.on.ca/​phpwiki/​report.php|keyanalysis report]]
 +shows which OCLUG users have signed each others keys.  If you would like
 +your key added, updated or removed from the report, send mail to [[:​deleted!]].
 +
 +Any member of the OCLUG Web Of Trust is, by definition, part of the
 +[[http://​keyserver.kjsl.com/​~jharris/​ka/​|global Web of Trust]].

 +
 +OCLUG has run two large keysigning parties in order to improve the links in the Web Of Trust. ​ The first one was
 +in June 2002 and the second one was in May 2003.
 +
 +If you wish to have your key signed, the original procedure is to:
 +
 +  - Mail the main OCLUG mailing list a few days in advance to let everybody know you intend to be there and so the meeting coordinator can schedule the meeting appropriately.
 + 2. Print out some keyslips. ​ The exact format doesn'​t matter too much, but the important information is all obtained from the first two lines output by //gpg --fingerprint//​ :
 +
 +    <​code>​
 +pub  1024D/​8E7C03FF 2001-02-17 Matthew Wilcox &​lt;​willy-at-debian.org&​gt;​
 +     Key fingerprint = 38FA A231 A84D E7C5 7248  50CC 2218 C81E 8E7C 03FF
 +</​code>​
 +
 +
 + 3. Attend the meeting, bringing photo ID (driver'​s licence, passport, etc) and your keyslips with you.
 +
 +OCLUG also does tutorials on the use of PGP/GPG occasionally.
 +
 +A revised procedure will be published shortly, as GPG keysigning is part of the ongoing service offered by the group.
