The Fifth HOPE (2004): "Encryption Key Signing" (Download)
Sunday, July 11, 2004: 5:00 pm (Area "B"): It's a surprising fact that a large number of attendees at this very conference, even those who call themselves hackers and/or security professionals, probably don't use any sort of encryption - or don't use it properly. One reason may be because people think nobody else uses it. So until it has a stronger presence, it won't be as widespread as it really should be. In order to help fight this, Seth Hardy will be hosting a key signing session. There will be a rundown of why people should be using strong crypto, how the web of trust works, and moderation to public verification of identity and key fingerprints.
