signify is cool too

July 02, 2020 — owen

signify + age is basically PGP without all the problems! it has forward secrecy too if you sign a new age public key every time you contact someone, something which is unreasonable to constantly do with PGP!

wow look its my public key!

age is cool

July 01, 2020 — owen

it is pretty clear pgp is way outside of its lifespan, lets replace it.

age is a cool alturnative, it has very tiny and portable keys! its very fast and quite secure too

look i can just randomly put my entire age public key here in the amount of space a pgp fingerprint would take up
