Currently, GNOME Keysign transfers keys via a wireless network. This requirement can be challenging in certain situations where the network does not allow clients to connect to each other. The idea now is to use, e.g. Bluetooth or Magic Wormhole to transfer a key. This project encompasses the following tasks: (i) implement a Bluetooth and wormhole sender and receiver, (ii) ensure that the data has not been tampered with, and (iii) provide enough details in error cases so that the user can recover from them.
