I am looking for peers for a new SKS keyserver installation.

I am running SKS version 1.1.6-4 (Debian stretch), on We are
an university and the server is installed for local access and to feed
another local-only keyserver, which distributes local keys from WKD to
keyserver-only clients. The server is physically located in Germany (EU)
on the DFN. The machine has *no* IPv6 connectivity.

I have loaded a keydump from, dated
I see NNNNNNN keys loaded.

For operational issues, please contact me directly. 11370 # Steffen Kaiser <[hidden email]>
