Georgia Tech Cyber Security, the IT unit that protects campus resources and data, is ready to help you encrypt your email. Cyber Security will host a “GPG Key Signing Party” for Georgia Tech faculty on September 6th.  This event covers the basics of cryptography and helps Georgia Tech faculty and staff understand how to encrypt messages.

A key signing party is a gathering where individuals verify and sign each other’s encryption keys, which is essential to read and receive encrypted email. If you don’t have an encryption key and/or would like to learn about GPG/PGP methods for protecting your data, attend the “Introduction to GPG” at 9 a.m. in Rich 242. (Feel free to skip this part if you are already a GPG pro!) At 10 a.m. in Rich 242, we will start the actual key signing. This process takes less than one hour, and gives you the assurance that the message you intend to send is the message that arrives intact.

Please remember to bring:

  • Your GPG fingerprint
  • Your photo ID

If you do not have a GPG fingerprint, arrive at 9 a.m. and we will help you secure one.

Coffee and donuts will be provided!
