What information do I need to provide, and when?

What information do I need to provide, and when?

1. In order for you to be part of the keysigning process you must make the following information available to me LATEST BY Wed, 14th July 1999:

  • Primary user-ID of the key (e.g. Raju Mathur raju@sgi.com)

  • Key size and key type (e.g. RSA/768)

  • Key ID (e.g. 0x83E874DD)

  • Key Fingerprint (e.g. F2 D4 4A 21 27 B0 63 FF 15 97 9D AE 9D 40 BC B8)

  • All this information is available using the command ``pgpk -ll <your
    name>''

2. After the ``party'', you must sign all the keys you wish to and
send them to me NO LATER THAN Sunday, 15th August, 1999. I will
redistribute the keys to their owners.
