    ...'best' way of making your public key available?

    Hi folks... quick question.. (..actually, it feels like a bit of a survey..) You have to get your 'public key' in the hands of whoever is going to send you an encrypted message. This can be accomplished by sending it in an email to someone that requests the key, submitting the key to a public key-server, ...mmmm... maybe having a 'link' in your signature file which points to the key in clear text. From a practical sense... which method have you folks found to be the most effective and the least hassle? Thanks... zippes

    Actually all of them so recipients may have the choice. The best way, though, would be attending a key signing party for directly verifying key ownership, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Key_signing_party.
