  1. In reply to: Keybase

    Keyoxide

    By .

    So it turns out there’s keyoxide with the similar concept, except it relies on keys.openpgp.org which I don’t really approve of. (I value Web of Trust, and keys.openpgp.org destroys that notation.) Seems I’m sort of stuck here.

  2. By .

    I recently got an email from keybase for broken proof (it was their part) and realized… there has been nothing done @ keybase for a while… after the Zoom acquisition.

    I really liked Keybase (as a proof records, and also as a quick web interface to encrypt pgp texts for non-techies) but seems like I will need some alternatives to handle both. It’d be good to do both within a single app but I think it’s pretty not gonna happen.
