This plugin does some features for a GPG/PGP key signing party.

It creates a table with username, key id and fingerprint. It is okay for listing only, but can be used widely.

Syntax Rules

  • add to your personal page the following user information. Multiple keys/fingerprints are possible by sperating with comma:
    • GPG Key: your key id, like 0xDEADBEEF
    • GPG Fingerprint: your key fingerprint, like FFFF FFFF FFFF ...

  • add yourself to the GpgkeySigningPartyList? list like: 3 spaces,asterix,name (including Main. .., e.g. TriBble?), it can also take Groups

GpgkeyPlugin Settings

  • One line description, shown in the TextFormattingRules topic:
    • Set SHORTDESCRIPTION = This plugin can be used to gather a list of gpg keys and fingerprints

  • Debug plugin: (See output in data/debug.txt)
    • Set DEBUG = 0

Plugin Installation Instructions


Note: You do not need to install anything on the browser to use this plugin. The following instructions are for the administrator who installs the plugin on the server where TWiki is running.

  • Download the ZIP file from the Plugin web (see below)
  • Unzip in your twiki installation directory. Content:
    File: Description:
    data/TWiki/GpgkeyPlugin.txt Plugin topic
    data/TWiki/GpgkeyPlugin.txt,v Plugin topic repository
    lib/TWiki/Plugins/ Plugin Perl module
  • maybe add it to enabledplugins list in TWikiPreferences


Note:_ This can be done by users.

Adds the following tags:

  • %GPGLISTVIEW% - displays a table list of GPG keys and fingerprints found in user information. Takes a list of users from the GpgkeySigningPartyList? topic.


  • topic - specify tree's root topic (if none, will do the entire web)

So you can use %GPGLISTVIEW{topic="GpgkeySigningPartyList"}% to define a specific topic, from which the (gpg-) user list shall be taken.

The WikiMaster? can add a GPG Key/Fingerprint questionarie at the TWikiRegistration for automatisation.
