gpgparticipants — generate paper list for keysigning party

Synopsis

gpgparticipants [Options] {input|-} {output|-} datestring organizer title

Description

gpgparticipants is targeted at organisers of a keysigning party that uses the Zimmermann-Sassaman key-signing protocol.

It creates a file with all the keys from a list of participators in your keysigning party. You give it a list with key ID's and some general variables, and it will generate a file you can publish. You publish this list; participants will download and print this file to take with them to the party.

Options

-aHASHES, --algorithm=HASHES

For each algorithm in HASHES, a comma-separated list of digest algorithms supported by gpg(1), add a placeholder for the digest value (to be filled by the participants) to the output file.  Default: SHA256,RIPEMD160.

Environment

HOME

Set the default home directory.

GNUPGBIN

Set the gpg binary.  Default: "gpg".

GNUPGHOME

Set the default working directory for gpg.  Default: "~/.gnupg".

Examples

To create a KSP file with all keys present in the keyring:

   gpg --with-colons --fingerprint | grep ^fpr: | cut -d: -f 10 | \
       gpgparticipants - ksp-file.txt "20080222 1100" "My Name <my.name@my.mail>" "my party 08"
