Rebooting the Web of Trust VII: Toronto (September 2018)

This repository contains documents related to RWOT7, the seventh Rebooting the Web of Trust design workshop, which ran near Toronto, Canada, on September 26th to 28th, 2018. The goal of the workshop was to generate five technical white papers and/or proposals on topics decided by the group that would have the greatest impact on the future.

Please see the Web of Trust Info website for more information about our community. Watch for our next event March 1st-3rd in Barcelona, Spain.

Topics & Advance Readings

In advance of the design workshop, all participants produced a one-or-two page topic paper to be shared with the other attendees on either:

  • A specific problem that they wanted to solve with a web-of-trust solution, and why current solutions (PGP or CA-based PKI) can't address the problem?
  • A specific solution related to the web-of-trust that you'd like others to use or contribute to?

Here are the advanced readings to date:


These primers overview major topics which are likely to be discussed at the design workshop. If you read nothing else, read these. (But really, read as much as you can!)
