onak

onak is an OpenPGP keyserver. It's currently at version 0.4.2, which largely improves on the backend keyd support intended for large keyservers. It's powering the keyserver running on the.earth.li - point gnupg at that host as a keyserver. Alternatively you can browse it directly starting with http://the.earth.li:11371/pks/lookup?op=vindex&search=0x2DA8B985

Description

onak is an OpenPGP keyserver. When I first started thinking about writing it there was no Free keyserver that could handle multiple subkey bindings. Now there are at least three I believe (CryptNet, onak and SKS). Also I wanted a keyserver that was integrated with my key pathfinder (http://the.earth.li/~noodles/pathfind.html). onak does both of these. While there are many things it doesn't do at present that are on my todo list development is progressing. The pathfinder component works happily, it's possible to setup bidirectional key syncing with pksd via email and there are a variety of database backends available including plain files, PostgreSQL and Berkeley DB4.

Development work is done in a Git repository, which can be found at git://the.earth.li/onak.git (GitWeb browser at http://the.earth.li/gitweb/?p=onak.git;a=summary). You can grab this by doing something like:

git clone git://the.earth.li/onak.git

Patches or ideas are always welcome; while development has been slow it has not stopped and I periodically find enough time to get some new stuff in and a new release out.
