Nearly a decade ago, Walter Haidinger posted a how to describing how
to setup an OpenLDAP PGP keyserver.


In that time, OpenLDAP configuration has gotten a lot more
complicated.  I've modernized and significantly expanded his tutorial.
You can find it here:


I did my best to provide a recipe that requires little prior knowledge
about OpenLDAP while also explaining the reasoning behind the actions
and high-level concepts.

I'd appreciate it if someone could try to reproduce the steps and
report any bugs.  I used Debian.  There are probably differences on
other platforms that are worth noting.

I'd also appreciate any improvements to the text.
