What is Keybase?

Keybase is a key directory that offers an end-to-end encrypted chat and cloud storage system, called Keybase Chat and the Keybase filesystem respectively. Keybase allows users to “prove” a link between certain online identities (such as a Twitter or Reddit account) and their encryption keys. Instead of using a system such as OAuth, identities are proven by posting a signed statement as the account a user wishes to prove ownership of. Since the Keybase app checks the proof, it avoids trust on first use.

You can also pipe all Keybase traffic via TOR and access the profile web-gui via the Tor Browser.

A browser extension for Chrome and Firefox allows you to add users on social media directly to Keybase.

Also, once the client is installed you can also run Keybase through the Command Line.

NOTE: This chat method is ONLY for those who have attended a DEFCON 201 Meet Up and joined our Mailing List. If you are on our Mailing List and are having issues/did not receive the invite please contact us at the next available meet up or email us at INFO (at) DEFCON201 {dot} ORG
