In addition, one of the mainstays of SCALE is the keysigning party, and once again SCALE 8x will
host the SCALE 8x PGP Keysigning Party on Saturday, Feb. 20.

A keysigning party is a get-together with PGP users for the purpose of meeting other PGP users and
signing each other's keys. This helps extend the "web of trust" to a great degree, while also
providing a forum to discuss strong cryptography and related issues.
