Synopsis:
Our December ALE NW Meeting and ALE Central meetings are being
combined as a PGP/GPG Keysigning Party (7:30pm to ~9:15pm) followed
by an ALE Solstice Season Social at a nearby eatery (starting by 9:30pm,
location to be announced).

For those unfamiliar with PGP or interested in learning more about the
GnuPG implentation of PGP cryptography and the value of protecting
your privacy and your identity with PGP signatures, we suggest you
review David Tomaschik’s March 2011 presesntation on the topic.
Video of this presentation is available for download or streaming under
the file name “ale-20110317-gpg-tomaschik.mp4” at these URL’s:
http://arxion.net/ale/ and http://jimkinney.us/downloads/
A torrent is also available at
https: //s3.amazonaws.com/datalore/ale-20110317-gpg-tomaschik.mp4?torrent
The video file is ~443MB as h.264 encode in an mp4 wrapper.

For those who wishing to participate, the key signing party serves to
confirm the identity of other PGP Key users by connecting them to a
“key ring” and including them in the “web of trust” needed to validate
their keys, signatures and identitiies.

Internationally recognized I.T. cryptography and security expert
Michael Warfield will present the GPG/PGP introduction and will
direct the key signing process.

COMPREHENSIVE DETAILS FOR PREPARATION AND PARTICIPATION
