Yes I do.
I really only want keys to be trusted if they are signed by the
If we have Admin, Sue, Joe and an outsider called Steve.
So if the Admin is assigned ultimate trust, and Sue and Joe have their keys
signed by Admin then can I say
between Admin and Sue we have a trusted relationship
and between Admin and Joe we have a trusted relationship
we want Sue and Joe to have a trusted relationship because both their keys
have been signed by Admin.
There should be no trust between Steve and any other member.
Will the web of trust allow me to set this up?
