Twitter

I use Twitter a bit as @ed_davies.

WebId

For the purposes of the Semantic Web I intend to name myself http://edavies.me.uk/#ed. Must get round to marking up this page with RDFa and adding an appropriate rdfs:seeAlso link from the main index page here.

Cryptography

Apart from the usual SSL/TLS (e.g., HTTPS) and SSH stuff I don't use a lot of crypto, unfortunately. However, I do sign emails unless they have attachments and I think the combination of a signature and an attachment might freak out the recipient or their user agent.

So, if you get an email message purportedly from me which isn't signed then it's worth treating it with a bit of care.

My current key, as of late 2016 February, is a 3072-bit RSA one:

ID 0x53798481
Fingerprint 9253 3CA2 D4DD E4CD 9C65 2483 0071 582E 5379 8481

which should be available from the usual keyservers. Still, here's the key in ASCII armoured form: edavies-pub-key.asc; if you use that then definitely check the fingerprint with me by another channel.

This replaces (and is signed by) my previous key from 2009:

ID 0xFE15D7CF
Fingerprint 6C2E 9D38 0F30 9D34 F2C3 82F3 E447 CE42 FE15 D7CF

Again, on the keyservers and as edavies-pub-key-2009.asc.

It expires in 2016 September and I do not plan to renew it but there's no real point in revoking it, at least for now. It's not compromised or anything (AFAIK!) and the security is still adequate for my purposes but with the combination of 1024-bit DSA with SHA1 signature hashes it looks like it might become a bit weak in the not-too-distant future.

By the way, I mostly use OpenPGP (GnuPG) via the Enigmail plugin (download) for Thunderbird.

Skype

I have a Skype account but have stopped using it as described in Bye Bye, Skype
