Re: public key service

One thing I would like to see is more ISPs running keyservers for the use
of their customers. A few of them do. Thre are other ways that companies
could provide services that involve keyserver access, but I can't go into
that here.

I attended the Keyserver Managers Symposium in Holland last month. A lot
of great ideas were presented, and a lot of problems discussed. One thing
is clear, and that is that the current PGP keyserver network needs to be
redesigned if it is to scale to another order of magnitude as far as
capacity. I expect that we will see good things happen in this regard in
the next year or so.

I'm willing to run one, or at the very least put up a site with
information on them. If anyone is interested in discussing this feel
free to email me off list. Any good resources for keyserver information?
