Gather a list of gpg keys and fingerprints


This plugin creates a table with username, key id and fingerprint. It is okay for listing only, but can be used widely.

Syntax Rules

  • Add to your personal page the following user information. Multiple keys/fingerprints are possible by separating with comma:
    • GPG Key: your key id, like 0xDEADBEEF
    • GPG Fingerprint: your key fingerprint, like FFFF FFFF FFFF ...

  • add yourself to the GpgkeySigningPartyList list like: 3 spaces,asterix,name (including Main. .., e.g. Main.MartinSteldinger), it can also take Groups

  • To report, add the following variable:
    • %GPGLISTVIEW% - displays a table list of GPG keys and fingerprints found in user information. Takes a list of users from the GpgkeySigningPartyList topic.
    • Attribute topic - specify tree's root topic (if none, will do the entire web)
    • You can use %GPGLISTVIEW{topic="GpgkeySigningPartyList"}% to define a specific topic, from which the (gpg-) user list shall be taken.
    • The TWiki administrator can add a GPG Key/Fingerprint questionnaire to the %SYTEMWEB%.TWikiRegistration to automate.


%GPGLISTVIEW% returns:


%GPGLISTVIEW{topic="Main.WhoUsesGPG"}% returns:
