FOSDEM '08 is a free and non-commercial event organised by the community, for the community. Its goal is to provide Free and Open Source developers a place to meet.


Keysigning party

Like previous years, there will be a keysigning party at FOSDEM.

Both CAcert and GPG/PGP signing will be done.

GPG/PGP keysigning

Key submission for the GPG/PGP keysigning party is now closed. If you still want to participate, this will only be possible if you bring enough copies of your fingerprint on paper with you. Due to time constraints, having participants copy your key on the key signing party will not be allowed, so make sure that's not necessary. Some participants may also choose to refuse to accept paper slips; don't be angry if this happens -- you should have been on time to make the list...

If you want to sign other participants' keys, also make sure you bring your copy of the list, and follow the instructions in that file to make sure you can participate.


TODO for visitors
  • If you can (you'll have less work later on), first go to the CAcert website to register.
  • Once logged in on the site, you'll find a "CAcert Web of Trust" menu. Click on that title to open the menu and download the personal "A4 - WoT Form". I recommend you to print approx 20-40 sheets of this document. as it will enable you to be signed by other people too. You need more as just one Assurance in order to have your name on the certificate or even become an Assurer yourself and help to establish the web of trust. You should also do this if you are already assurer, so that cross signatures are possible.
  • Take 2 official proofs of identity. (eg: ID-card, drivers-license, passport,...).
The proceedings for the signing are simple.
We make 1 line, Assurers will sit (floor/seat), visitors willing to be assured will pass and show their identity papers. Papers will be signed.
