Graphing webs-of-trust.

Held in MC4042, on 2004-03-02, at 6:00 PM.


In today's world, people have hundreds of connexions. And you can express these connexions with a graph. For instance, you may wish to represent the network of your friends.

Originally, webs-of-trust were directed acyclic graphs of people who had identified each other. This way, if there was a path between you and the person who want to identify, then you could assume that each person along that path had verified the next person's identity.

I will show you how to generate your own web-of-trust graph using Free Software. Of course, you can also use this knowledge to graph anything you like.
