@HerraBRE That sounds very reasonable.
@micahflee Congrats! We're publishing fingerprints.txt ourselves, I'll have to check we're still complying with the standard though :)
Thanks to everyone whose valuable feedback guided today's release of Fluidkeys 👋
Now you can send private keys and certs direct from a file with no fiddly copy/paste 💾
Nor are companies:
"Perfect credit cooperation models between retailers and suppliers. Strengthen anti-monopoly and anti-unfair competition law enforcement, strengthen investigation and prosecution of acts of market distortion, false propaganda, commercial swindling, commercial slander, commercial bribes and other such unlawful acts, expose model cases and major cases increase the costs for enterprises to break trust, and stimulate sincere business and fair competition"
Some select highlights:
"Sincerity in government affairs is the crux of social credit system construction..."
"[to] perfect mechanisms and procedures for government policymaking, raise the transparency of policymaking"
"...broaden channels for public participation in government policymaking, strengthen social supervision over and constraints on the use of power, improve government credibility, establish an honest image of an open, fair and clean government."
(it isn't how I expected)
Finished prepping my talk on China's Social Credit System (thanks for the great links).
I was most surprised by the official Planning Outline [translated]: https://chinacopyrightandmedia.wordpress.com/2014/06/14/planning-outline-for-the-construction-of-a-social-credit-system-2014-2020/
1/2 of the focus is on government itself (typically I read only about area #3):
1. integrity in government affairs
2. commercial integrity
3. societal integrity
4. judicial credibility
@HerraBRE Ah yes I know the one. I kind of want to wear it on a chain round my neck like some sort of post-apocalyptic prepping nutcase
@weltini You're welcome: thanks for your interest!
@wiktor The brand confusion is entirely my fault! I should never have release Monitor under the same domain / name as Expirybot!
@keverets Excellent links, thanks. Turns out asking you mastodon folks is a very good way of learning things!
@tastytea Great, thank you!
Slightly sad but mostly relieved to be shutting down my PGP keyserver monitoring service.
It wasn't working well and it was difficult and stressful to maintain.
Planning how to close it respectfully and delete people's data has felt good. Getting some nice email replies :D
@grumpy_developer Ha, I love it!
@wiktor Once again, hats off to your knowledge! :D
@wiktor The authority key model is the sort of thing we're planning: the team roster is a signed file containing the fingerprints of the whole team and the team's admin (similar to gpgsync). Then Fluidkeys can either 1) set "ultimate" trust to the admin in GnuPG or 2) locally-sign all the team keys in the roster.
There are pros and cons to each: 1) gives the admin control over keys *outside* the team which is strange.
@HerraBRE That's awesome, how slim is slim?
Engineer, maker, dreamer.
