Generation of a gpg key in Ubuntu 16

Generation of your gpg key ```bash $ gpg --gen-key ``` If you need to generate random entropy ```bash $ apt-get install rng-tools $ rngd -f -r /dev/urandom $ cp -a /dev/urandom /dev/random ``` The output is something like this ``` gpg: clave B3AEFF89 marcada como de confianza absoluta claves pública y secreta creadas y firmadas. gpg: comprobando base de datos de confianza gpg: 3 dudosa(s) necesaria(s), 1 completa(s) necesaria(s), modelo de confianza PGP gpg: nivel: 0 validez: 1 firmada: 0 confianza: 0-, 0q, 0n, 0m, 0f, 1u pub 2048R/B3AEFF89 2017-04-26 Huella de clave = 7343 EE4F 867C 373E 1D9A DE01 B04C 1105 B3AE FC14 uid Hector Perez sub 2048R/84FD55D2 2017-04-26 ``` From this message you have to extract your gpg key, in this case is B3AEFF89. Next, go to and search your key 0xB3AEFF89 (The two first characters 0x must be added) Next, you will find your key there. After, copy and save the content of your key in a file, let's say keyfile.txt ```bash $ sudo apt-key add keyfile.txt ``` That is all! Another useful commands are: To list your gpg keys ```bash $ sudo apt-key list ``` To delete a gpg key B3AEFF89 ```bash $ sudo apt-key del B3AEFF89 ``` References --- * […](…) * […](…)
