新しい OpenPGP 鍵サーバが Launch したらしい

no extension

OpenPGP のメーリングリストより。

  • Fast and reliable. No wait times, no downtimes, no inconsistencies.
  • Precise. Searches return only a single key, which allows for easy key discovery.
  • Validating. Identities are only published with consent, while non-identity information is freely distributed.
  • Deletable. Users can delete personal information with a simple e-mail confirmation.
  • Built on Rust, powered by Sequoia PGP - free and open source, running AGPLv3.

ほほう。 Rust ベースなのか。 面白いな。

現行の OpenPGP 鍵サーバ同士は peer-to-peer で同期しているが,新しい keys.openpgp.org はこれらとは別のネットワークを形成するようだ。

We created keys.openpgp.org to provide an alternative to the SKS Keyserver pool, which is the default in many applications today. This distributed network of keyservers has been struggling with abuse, performance, as well as privacy issues, and more recently also GDPR compliance questions. Kristian Fiskerstrand has done a stellar job maintaining the pool for more than ten years, but at this point development activity seems to have mostly ceased.
We thought it time to consider a fresh approach to solve these problems.

さらに

The keys.openpgp.org keysever will receive first-party support in upcoming releases of Enigmail for Thunderbird, as well as OpenKeychain on Android. This means users of those implementations will benefit from the faster response times, and improved key discovery by e-mail address. We hope that this will also give us some momentum to build this project into a bigger community effort.

ということで EnigmailOpenKeychain と連携するのであれば期待できそうな感じである。 ただし,いまのところ GnuPG との相性がイマイチのようなので,もう少し様子を見たいところではある。

これで思い出すのが,かつての OpenPKSD だが,日本主導でフル Ruby で組まれていて割と期待してたんだが,世界的にはあまり注目されないまま閉鎖されたんだよなぁ。 今回の keys.openpgp.org がそうならないことを祈るばかりである。

評価     

SHA-3 や Bitcoin/Blockchain など新しい知見や技術要素を大幅追加。暗号技術を使うだけならこれ1冊でとりあえず無問題。
