I live in San Francisco sometimes, and if you find yourself here I will totally sign your key. Then anyone who trusts my key will also trust your key, and anyone who you trust will also be trusted by them like a pyramid scheme of trust.

Signing your key will attest that:

  • You are known to me by the identity on your UID
  • I have verified you are the ower of the email on your UID
  • If your key has a photo (recommended no more than 6kb, 240×288) as you.
gpg --ask-cert-level \
    --ask-cert-expire \
    --expert \
    --sig-keyserver-url hkps:// \
    --sig-policy-url '' \
    --sign-key FINGERPRINT

gpg --export FINGERPRINT | \
  gpg --armor --encrypt --recipient FINGERPRINT \
  > FINGERPRINT-signedBy-9600F122.asc

I will then send this file to your email to verify that you have access to it. You can then import this file with

gpg --import FINGERPRINT-signedBy-9600F122.asc

You can then send your key signature up to the cloud, if you choose.


I will only issue cert levels of level 0x10 (Generic certification), for the points listed here: gpg --ask-cert-level considered harmful.

My signature will be indefinite if your key expires in less than 2 years.
