uploading public key to addressbook

Post by hammer »

HI everybody;

How can one upload his / her public key in the public addressbook (http://hq.postman.i2p/?page_id=21) so others can see and use if needed?

Best;
-- Hammer.

You can't do that. One address book (I2P Router > Addressbook) is a frontend for SusiDNS, the DNS resolver for I2P, the other for e-mail addresses. The name was chosen unfortunately, which can lead to confusion.

No I didn't mean that "address" and public key.

I have created a PGP encryption key for my email address @mail.i2p and want to add that to the public email addresses addressbook, at the given URL.

That was already clear to me, dear colleague, but you are in the wrong* forum, as I wrote it well hidden in my first answer. (*Disclaimer: I come from Germany, maybe it's handled differently somewhere else.) Perhaps the admin will move the post to the right place later?

The PGP could then be managed together with the other mailbox settings. Meanwhile this was turned off.
[10:56] <lg> postman: say, is PGP Key upload generally disabled in HQ or does it work differently now?
[11:03] <postman> send it to me via mail, i will include it there
[11:05] <lg> Is that the procedure for all involved? I'm asking because there's a request about this in the forum.
[11:11] <eche|off> we do have keys.i2p-projekt.i2p / .de - but thats just a simple sks keyserver synced with gpg clearnet keyservers
[11:12] <postman> yes did not find the time to wrap my head around an 'official' keyserver
(The named key server does not exist. Alternative: http://keyserver.sigterm.i2p/)
