V1 Signature Phasing - 31/08/2011 - Sign up

Recommended Posts

This post is important to any administrators of Arma2OA servers

What is this about?

I am proposing that administrators sign up here to commit their group to a V2 switchover by the date in the title (31/08/2011). The main reason for this... to escape from V1 signatures and accelerate the change, else we will be stuck with a mixture forever.

Why do this?

The V2 signatures check slightly faster, also adds better protection for dedicated server administrators against malicious users.

How do I sign up?

Reply here and you'll be added to the commitment list, to show that your community is switching over to V2 signatures in the coming months. Please state your NAME and GROUP you represent.

What do I hope to achieve?

To get addon makers to move to V2 signatures, or get communities sharing V2 sig signed products if the addon makers are no longer around.

Groups commited so far

  • Havoc Company
  • Crossfire Gaming Coalition
  • The Game Wardens

Addons commited so far

  • PvPscene Addon Packs
  • PvPscene Tweaks (By 31/08/2011)

I would like to switch... but we play a lot of mods...

You guys gonna abandon mods/addons which are not using v2 signatures?

You can enlist our small group, but i cannot promise that we will do till the end of august. It's up to the addon makers now. :(

However, i support this effort.

Group:

I would just like to point out to server organizers that it is not too hard to make your own V2 signatures, with the support of the new binPbo. I suggest making v2 sigs and putting them up to download on the servers website.

Duala 1.95 is in V2, except African Foliage v1.24t2 supplied with it (still V1).

I'll update other islands as they get their own updates soon.

Ditch or resign yes. " A lot of mods" is irrelevent. We have more than you I bet, simple batch file mass signing = problem solved.

I will not add it to this list at the present time then, as you can't play duala without african foliage, so sort of useless having one with v2 and one with v1 ;).

Yeah here's how it's going to go for us. If there are mods we use that are still v1, we'll re-sign them ourselves with a v2 key.

I would like to join this.

But I will not re-sign other people's addons.

Since that makes it harder for members to play on other servers.

But I will do my share to point out to addon makers that they should make V2 as soon as possible.

And I will try to use only V2 signatures.

It's a shame that this has not been wider spred.

An addon (more precise a pbo) can have two or more bisign files.

Noticed it wasn't on the list.

ACRE has a new bikey for V2, as well as new V2 bisigns (acre2). You should know this rex ;)

Oki, so if I sign the files to V2 on my server but also keep the originals, then set the server to V2, then everybody can connect without being kicked?

And also the client can connect to other servers without problems?

V2 signatures still work with V1, just not the other way around. No need to have both V1 and V2 keys folks. I appreciate you taking my request btw Jaynus and adding V2, however not sure why you still have the V1 since the V2 will work fine for those servers running V1 checks. Also can JayArmA2Lib be changed to V2? Much thanks.

If All the ACE Mods content, Zeus AI ACE, ACRE, JayArmA2 Lib and shacktac movement/hud are setup for V2 then the 3rd Marine Division Gaming Organization will likely commit to V2. I will contact ShackTac on their addons along with a few other makers.

We need people to get a move on with this V2 phase. We'll also have rampant script kiddies if we don't use the security settings available to us!

Nice, will try to use these listings to update the v2 signs on SU network.

Perhaps those that are still missing, I can sign with a second SU key (v2).

It's basically the only real way to greatly cripple script kiddies.

Email the proof / method to Dwarden.

Were all involved addons signed with v2, and v2-only enabled in the config?

If it really is the case, switching to v2 still should lower the exposure, as probably a lot more people have v1 tools already.
