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 http://keyserver.ubuntu.com/ 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 --- * [http://kimberling146.blogspot.fr/2015/08/la-generacion-de-claves-gpg-no…](http://kimberling146.blogspot.fr/2015/08/la-generacion-de-claves-gpg-no…) * [https://askubuntu.com/questions/308760/w-gpg-error-http-ppa-launchpad-n…](https://askubuntu.com/questions/308760/w-gpg-error-http-ppa-launchpad-n…)
