remote/group key verification options

Reported by Michael Farb | October 30th, 2014 @ 07:14 PM

It would be great to provide an easier option for users to verify keys other than manual key verification. I work on the SafeSlinger library (https://github.com/SafeSlingerProject), which creates a authenticated and confidential channel for users to simultaneously exchange and verify public keys for 2-10 users by comparing a 3-word phrase (SAS). We have iOS, Android, and python libraries currently. If there is strong interest for this ability in GPGTools, we may be able to focus some time on a OSX library. As an example, PGP/GPG app OpenKeychain (http://www.openkeychain.org/openkeychain-3-1) has integrated SafeSlinger recently.

Some months ago, I discussed this with Lucas briefly over email, but I wanted to get a ticket opened if there is still interest in this direction. :-)
