First step

gpg – -gen-key

accept defaults except the keysize(as your level of expectations) and of cause your name and email address

when generating the key if the generator complains that there is not enough CPU work currently being executed to generate enough entropy, generate some events in your OS and do some work (Example : execute a heavy program for example like build a project from source).

Next Step : After the key generation upload the key to a key server, with gpg – -send-keys XXXXXXX

where XXXXXXXX will be the secoend part of your generated key that will be displayed above. Ex XXXXX/XXXXXXXX

Finally the most important next step is to backup the generated key (located in .gnuppg) in a safe and trusted way (You can not loose your private key), this is your decision 🙂

The WSO2 Identity Solution enables LAMP and Java websites to provide strong authentication based on the new interoperable Microsoft CardSpace technology, which is built on the open standards Security Assertion Mark-up Language (SAML) and WS-Trust. WSO2’s new open source security offering features an easy-to-use Identity Provider that is controlled by a simple Web-based management console and supports interoperability with multiple vendors’ CardSpace components, including those provided by Microsoft .NET. The WSO2 Identity Solution also works with enterprises’ current identity directories, such as those based on the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and Microsoft Active Directory, allowing them to leverage their existing infrastructure. In addition to the Identity Provider WSO2 Identity Solution provides a Relying Party Component Set which plugs into the most common web servers to add support for CardSpace authentication.
