Those using PGP for encrypting/signing emails are probably familiar with PGP keysigning parties.

Recently I started using PIUS for signing the keys & sending the signed key via email to the intended recipient. Most folks are probably familiar with caff (

I find that the installation and configuration is quite straight forward. To make sure that pius works with your mail server, you probably should configure your email settings in ~.pius/piusrc

Here’s how mine looks like:


Note that I’ve also included my default signing key id up there so that I can just do:

pius key-id-to-sign

And you’ll then be prompted with the password of your mail server

There are some other options so do check out the man page or do a pius –help
