Trustery is a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and identity management system on the Ethereum blockchain.
The aim of this project is to provide a PKI that has built-in certificate transparency to make it easy to detect rogue certificates, by building an alternative to decentralized PKI by using a public-ledgered web-of-trust model for fine-grained identity management.
This project is a result of my undergraduate thesis.
Usage: trustery [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]... Ethereum-based identity system. Options: --help Show this message and exit. Commands: add Add an attribute to your identity. ipfsadd Add an attribute to your identity over IPFS. ipfsaddpgp Add a PGP key attribute to your identity over IPFS. retrieve Retrieve an attribute. revoke Revoke one of your signatures. search Search for attributes. sign Sign an attribute. trust Trust an Ethereum address. trusted View the list of trusted Ethereum addresses. untrust Untrust an Ethereum address.

You can now run the command
trustery from the command-line.
In order to use the system, you will first need to:
- Run geth with the JSON RPC enabled.
- Compile and publish the smart contract at
contract/trustery-alt.soland change the
As this project is currently experimental, there is no official smart contract published yet. You are advised to test the smart contract on a test network.
At the moment, all transactions are executed from your first Ethereum address (
