PGP Global Verification Service

PGP relies on the principle of the “Web Of Trust“. It also offers a service that allows for signing your key by PGP itself. It is called “PGP Global Directory Verification Service” and is quite easy to handle:

  1. Go to http://keyserver1.pgp.com/vkd/ and upload your key.
  2. You’ll receive an e-mail by PGP. Open this e-mail and click on the provided link to finalize the verification process.
  3. Check the fingerprint and continue.
  4. Now download the verified key and click on o.k.
  5. Import the key.
  6. Update the public key-servers

Your done.
