keybase.io is a service that lets you securely share data with another person.  It allows you to encrypt and/or sign data then easily share it to the public or another keybase.io user.

It has a few huge differentiators however:

  1. Super easy to use.  Don’t have to be a public key encryption expert to use
  2. Social network approach to establishing trust (aka I trust who you say you are).  You can see my keybase profile here.
  3. Share data seamlessly with another keybase via your local filesystem by using the keybase filesystem

In addition to the keybase filesyste, there are CLI and web UI tools to encrypt/sign and share data.

Keybase signup currently requires an invitation code.  Want an invite? Put in your email below and I’d be more than happy to hook you up.
