    Ideas?
    (For next year, obviously):

    If you have people signing up for this beforehand, you could use the technique Phil and I came up with a while back:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zimmerm...gning_protocol

    Signing keys on the spot at Defcon strikes me as a sketchy idea. (It would be a perfect opportunity for someone to try out the Shamir attack on GPG/&c. in practice. You can listen to the capacitor noise on a motherboard and pull out p and q during a signing *over a telephone*, so doing so against a laptop or whathaveyou in a public area at defcon would be trivial, assuming you've implemented the attack.)

    Hmm. Perhaps I should do a talk on that next year.

    With the conference drawing very near -
    are there any updates on when and where exactly the signing will take place?

    DT generally puts this together.

    In the past we had business cards to exchange (with fingerprints, key id, etc)-
