Intro to GPG and the Web of Trust

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

GPG is an open source suite of cryptographic software that allows you to encrypt and sign your data and communications. This is an introductory talk for users with little or no experience with GPG. We'll talk about how GPG works at a high level, what you need to know to create your own GPG Key, and how GPG can be used to encrypt your data, as well as securing your email. 

We'll also talk about the Web of Trust, and how this decentralized trust model is used in GPG to help establish the authenticity of a GPG Key and its owner. We'll talk about key concepts of the Web of Trust, and how you can get started in the Web of Trust by attending Key signing parties.
