Every Debian member needs a GPG key of sufficient strength. In addition, all keys should be certified
so we can link them to a real-world identity.
The normal requirements are:
- the key should be type RSA and version 4 or greater
- the key should have the sign, certify and encrypt capabilities (subkeys are encouraged)
- the primary cryptographic material should be at least 4096 bits
- the UIDs used by an applicant to work in the project should be signed by at least two existing Debian members (1 for DM applications)
- as an alternative to the previous requirement, the key can be endorsed (see link at the bottom of the page) by multiple Debian Members (the number of required endorsements depends on the endorsement's age and nature)
- pseudonyms or anonymity are acceptable in certain circumstances
If the key does not meet these requirements, and you would struggle to create one which does, contact Front Desk.
Keys are first searched in
hkps://keyring.debian.org. If no key is found,
then the key will be imported from
hkps://keyserver.ubuntu.com/. Please ensure that you
have sent your key to Ubuntu's key server. Sending public keys to keyring.debian.org will only work if your
key is already in Debian's keyring and will only be taken into account after the Keyring Maintainers
updated it. For Debian Maintainers and Developers, please remember to send your key to both servers.
This check will be approved manually by Front Desk as the application progresses.

Although it looks like David has enough signatures from other sources now, I'm
adding it for posterity.
I have interacted with David using his present e-mail  and one of David's
previous keys , on numerous occasions in 2012, 2013 and 2014 by sponsoring
one of his packages. His application key  has a valid GPG signature from
In 2019, we interacted briefly using key different from  and .
In 2020, I have interacted with David using his e-mail  and his DD
application key  by receiving signed e-mails from him. I have additionally
verified that, in 2020:
- David can read an e-mail encrypted for him using key ;
- David can reproduce bits from our private communication in 2013 in a signed
e-mail using key .
Therefore, I without a doubt conclude that David is in possession of e-mail
, keys , and is the same person I've interacted with starting back in
