Web of Trust
PGP public key and CAcert certificate identification are based on multiple (the more the better) people doing an identification check against official identity documents such as driving permits, passports, national identity cards, etc.: the Web of Trustworthy. The Web of Trust is a reciprocal process: people identify themselves to each other.
The "keysigning party" is essential to strengthen the Web of Trust and keep the security technique open and freely available.
Like previous years, there will be a PGP key signing and CAcert assurance party at FOSDEM 2010.
If you are participating in the keysigning party, you may have missed the master hashes when they were briefly projected in room Ferrer. Just in case, the hashes are:

Alternatively, if you don't trust https/pki/cacert/..., and there is a trust path between your PGP key and Philip's, you can find the hashes on http://ksp.fosdem.org/files/ksp-fosdem2010_hashes.txt and their detached signature on http://ksp.fosdem.org/files/ksp-fosdem2010_hashes.txt.asc
To participate in the CAcert assurance program, you need to register an account on the CAcert website and download the CAcert Certificate Assurance Programme (CAP) form.
You will need a completed form for every assurance. It is recommended to bring at least ten printed forms with you.
