PrivaSphere - project:

Public Key Server

Institution: ZHW

Supervisor: Marc Rennhard, Ralf Hauser

Team: t.b.d.


Years ago, a PGP key-server has been built at MIT. For the S/MIME i.e. x.509 world the landscape is rather fragmented. Some CA's have a public key directory for their own clients, but no overarching solution is available and the offered ones are sometimes of limited implementation quality.
