Bitcoin blockchain for PGP web of trust
View gist:8024069
Start a new blockchain (colloquially the Bitcoin protocol) to store public keys and revocation certificates/notices.
- One single blockchain for the whole of the web ensures it is obvious when others attempt to impersonate you
- Revocation certificates cannot be missed as there is only a single place they should be found
- No more dealing with multiple out-of-sync public key servers, a single secure store of all PGP keys can be used
- The blockchain protocol based on scrypt() to help ensure a more balanced hashing/securing of the network, as it is an ASIC resistant algorithm
