Hash: SHA1

me too.  However, i searched for tony.gies at gruppe86.net but nothing was found.  Do you have another public key somewhere up on the net.  

StartSSL.com has a free account and has a WOT that interoperates with a real in-the-person local area notary.  Wasn't there someone in the group that is a notary.  

One problem is that there are so many different kinds of keys each with their own trust lists.  There are gpg keys, ssh keys, ssl certificates, vpn keys, and others.   None of them talk to one another well.  i have kleopatra on my CentOS 6.4 box but it is not configured correctly and will not allow me to import x.509 / ssl certificates. 

i would like to use ssh with SSL like certificates under my own CA.   FreeIPA may manage this much better.  

The above text is in the process of being signed via 
$gpg --clearsign

Version: GnuPG v2.0.14 (GNU/Linux)
