Security and integrity

I am very concerned about the absence of integrity in today's connected society. We leave so many digital tracks when we're online that big companies know more about us than we know. In addition, they have the ability to never forget.

I do what I can to keep my own integrity. This includes, but is not limited to, using a VPN service when I'm online, and as soon as it goes, I use encrypted email. In addition to this, I use services like Signal, Jabber and Mumble to communicate with my friends.

I have nothing to hide, but I like to keep my integrity!

Keysigning policy

I follow these quite simple rules when signing OpenPGP keys.

  1. I only sign an OpenPGP key when I have personally met the person who claims to be the owner of a key
  2. The owned of the OpenPGP key must have prepared a strip of paper with key info (--fingerprint)
  3. The OpenPGP key must be publicly available on a major key server like pool.sks-keyservers.net or pgp.mit.edu
  4. For EU residents: The owner of the OpenPGP key must prove identity to me (national ID card, passport, a driver's licence)
  5. For non-EU residents: The owner of the OpenPGP key must prove identity to me using two governmental issued ID's (like national ID card and passport)
  6. As soon as I get my OpenPGP key signed by others I will upload my key to a major public key server
  7. Certification Levels
    1. I will not answer: never used
    2. I have not checked at all: never used
    3. I have done casual checking: used in very rare cases when I know the OpenPGP key owner without checking an ID
    4. I have done very careful checking: the normal Certification Level when I sign an OpenPGP key
  8. I always send OpenPGP keys signed by me in an encrypted and signed e-mail
