What's up with that?
Thawte has a system of travelling notaries
and an institutionalized Web-Of-Trust system going.
It seems rather innocuous, actually...
They are issuing free personal X.509 certs
and PGP keys. (bad idea, btw).. But they'll
also sign your PGP key for you if you can
show some ID to their web form and to a
few of their (usually free) notaries... (good idea)
Unfortunately, their form can't handle
my GnuPG key... They also have a problem with newer
PGP keys, they say.. I guess they need to do some work...
Anybody have any experience or opinions with this system?
More info at:
I noticed L.Sassaman has a
"Thawte Freemail Member" id on his key...
Mr. Sassaman, any hints?
