Hey all!

Well.. Jan 2008 has crept up on us.  We wanted to organize a GPG keysigning 
part like we did back in 2005, but my wife just delivered our first 
bio-child, so I'm a bit indisposed to help organize this for January.

Long story short, Richard Davey is going to prep the group by giving and intro 
session on the types and history of encryption, as well as talk on how we (as 
a group) prepare for and perform a key-signing party.

I have not spoken to Richard this weekend, but if it's like the one that he 
did for us back in 2005, then it will probably cover:

-Brief History of Encryption
-Dual Key Encryption
-Evolution of PGP
-GPG takes over Open Source Encryption
-Risks of dual Key encryption
-Importance of Key Signing / Trust
-Steps to prepare for participating in a keysigning party
-How we hold keysigning parties

Where: SAC NTC (http://xcssa.org/#MAP)
When:  Jan 21st, 7pm(ish)
Room:  025 (in basement)
