MFPL Shared Keyring

MFPL uses an OpenPGP encrypted file, that is shared via git, to store root and encrypted disk passphrases.

To help us securely read and create new keys, we use a program called keyringer.

Members of the support team can access the keys by following these steps:

  • Checkout the keyringer software:
    git clone git://git.sarava.org/keyringer.git
    
  • Add the path to your bash $PATH variable by editing ~/.bashrc and adding:
       export PATH="$PATH:/path/to/keyringer"
    
  • Checkout the MFPL key ring
    git clone gitosis@git.mayfirst.org:mfpl/keys
    
  • Use the bash wrapper script in the MFPL key ringer directory to search for keys. For example, to find the passphrase for assata:
    ./pass assata
