So in order to post to nanog you would have to have your PGP
key signed by NANOG or the list operator or another entity trusted
by all. How do you establish trust for that signing?
Having a key-signing party at the upcoming NANOG is a good
place to start.
The Usenix key signing is a good model for techie types, but
we are the minority. How would the great unwashed have their
keys signed? Besides, I like being able to post without having to
attend a NANOG meeting though I could live with the restriction.
Strong crypto for the masses!
For what it's worth, the same model holds true for meetings of
the IETF; Ted Tso has been organizing key-signing parties that
are held one evening during IETF week.
