Hi there, Pekka,
On 02 January 2001, I received the following message from you regarding
"Howto distribute key signatures"
PS> I didn't see this covered in the Handbook, FAQs or anywhere.
PS> I have a couple of RL friends who have GPG/PGP keys. They're willing to
PS> sign my public key.
PS> Now the question becomes: how to proceed, or more specifically:
PS> After they have checked my ID and signed the key, how should it be added
PS> to the keyservers so that when someone gets my key from the keyserver,
PS> they'd get the other peoples' signatures too?
PS> One of them sent me my public key encrypted to me but I assume he didn't
PS> do this right because the key inside was identical to my own.
PS> Please Cc:.
PS> Pekka Savola
The accepted ettiquette (at least with PGP) is that you sign a key and
send the signed key back to the originator. He/She then uploads a
signed key to the keyservers.
Using PGP in Windows, there is a function to update the key, rather
than just send it to the keyserver, but there is no keyserver access
built into GnuPG for Windows, so if it is your key that needs updating,
send the key via a web based keyserver....I'd suggest http://www.keyserver.net/en/
Hope this helps

Please PGP/GnuPG sign mail for verification and encrypt for internet security
