    Funny coincidence...I just found your card from DC12 last week. Guess I'll take VS's advice and do it myself this year. A while back when I did have some sensitive issues going on, I used PGPFone for a while...but I've never really used PGP. Name, email, avatar, ID/Fingerprint suffice?

    What you need to do is have him make you a badge without DefconXXX on it. That way you can use it again next year and the for other cons.

    I think DT is describing the act of his own signing of other people's keys and then publishing his own work to the keyservers-- not having people "sign in" using his laptop.

    The "business cards template" is meant to be a system by which people can pre-print the information necessary about their key (ID/Fingerpint/checksum/etc) which would be done before you attended the key-signing party.

    ...
    As for having the laptop secured before the event, if DT can't do this on his own (heh) he probably has friends who can help him. (heh-heh heh-heh hrm. Oh yeah!)

    If on my palm, wouldn't Las Vegas heat that causes me to sweat smear it off? But a post it, what color? bright red? That will attract attention, I need a solid dark color.

    You are the kind of person we want using encryption. If you assume that the government can break modern encryption (albeit not easily), then we want the signal-to-noise ratio to be so low as to not make it worth the effort.

    Besides, it lends legitimacy to both the field and the applications. I'm more inclined to believe that most people don't use PGP because the ease-of-use is slightly beyond what users are willing to tolerate and the user-base has not reached critical mass yet.

    True, I still have LosT's card. Nice to meet him. Frankly, I don't have a lot of use for PGP (your mileage may vary).

    Sweet, I need to update my keyring anyways!

    If you guys want to get creative, one of the joys private information operations is having access to a print shop.

    I'll get some prices online soon for one to four color business/PGP cards if you can have them done to some industry specs.

    Cards such as those LosT are discussing are pretty much mandatory. At the key party, you pass out cards with the indicated information to people that will accept them. After the party, each person goes through their stack of cards and signs them.

    In other words, it's an "offline" event.

    Most people are not willing to go through the hassle of copying your information to sign your key. That is the reason you bring cards.

    That's only because I tend to keep my mouth shut most of the time.

    In all seriousness, TheCotMan and I aren't adversaries by any definition. In fact, we tend to agree on most of the discussions here (in that, TheCotMan presents the facts, and I can't argue with facts ). I don't drink, but I'm sure TheCotMan is thirsty after all of his typing and I'd be willing to help him quench his thirst.

    Oh, and he is correct: being invited is certainly not a requirement for my attendance.
