Adding an Owncast proof - Keyoxide

Adding an Owncast proof

Let’s add a decentralized Owncast proof to your OpenPGP keys.

Update your Owncast server configuration

On your server, add the following lines to the instanceDetails > socialHandles entry in the config.yaml (make sure to replace FINGERPRINT):

    - platform: keyoxide
      url: https://keyoxide.org/FINGERPRINT

When not identifying your key by its fingerprint (for example, when using WKD), add the following lines instead:

    - platform: keyoxide
      url: https://keyoxide.org/EMAIL#FINGERPRINT

Update the PGP key

First, edit the key (make sure to replace FINGERPRINT):

gpg --edit-key FINGERPRINT

Get a list of user IDs and find the index of the one to assign the notation to:

list

Select the desired user ID (make sure to replace N):

uid N

Add a new notation:

notation

Enter the notation (make sure to update with the domain of the Owncast instance):

proof@metacode.biz=https://stream.example.org

Save the key:

save

Upload the key to WKD or use the following command to upload the key to keys.openpgp.org (make sure to replace FINGERPRINT):

gpg --keyserver hkps://keys.openpgp.org --send-keys FINGERPRINT

And you’re done! Reload your profile page, it should now show a verified Owncast account.
