I have keybase setup for myself. I waited forever to actually get invited, and now that I have it, I don’t know what to do with it. Does anyone here use it? For what?
I’ve used it a few times to encrypt messages to friends or FOSS people.
Honestly, I just treat it like another keyserver.
I haven’t tried using this yet: https://keybase.io/docs/kbfs But that’s one thing I’d like to use.
I’ve been on it since the beta, and it’s awesome. Hidden features like serving markdown: https://keybase.pub
Holy crap that’s awesome! It’s like a cooler github pages ;)
I’ve been using it just another keyserver and to verify some of my public presence. At the time I read about this kbfs but completely forgot about it. The idea looks awesome, will have to try it.
To me, it’s mostly just another social network that deals primarily in public keys, but its secure file sharing thing is pretty interesting. I’ve not used it for anything appreciable yet, though.
I use it to verify my online presences and as a GPG social network of sorts. I have found people I forgot about on there and it’s nice to see they’re using PGP.
I just use it to exchange encrypted email with friends. Honestly I just appreciate the fact that they FINALLY gave public key encryption some sincere UX love.
I have no idea yet, but I’d appreciate an invite.
You can just click the “Join” link top-right on their homepage, no?
pm me your email
I used to use it for key distribution, but rolling keys is a real pain, so I stopped using it. I never got around to trying the keybase filesystem, though.
the keybase file system is useful if you need to securely send a file to a coworker (secret keys or whatnot). GUI integration makes it very painless, and the data isn’t on Slack’s servers somewhere.
I have an invite for it, but I honestly have no use for it.
I plan to use it to finally start signing commits in Git and Mercurial.
Via GPG, likely. That’s what I’m doing.
By why through keybase? Makes no sense to me.
Like worr said above, just treating it like another keyserver.
I used it as the crypto layer of an improved archive format: https://github.com/robey/4bottle
