PGP/GPG key signing commands

Because I don’t sign keys very often I always have to search for the commands. So here is a little reminder for my bad memory(called /dev/brain).  😉

Get keys from a keyserver: gpg –keyserver pgp.mit.edu –recv-keys  <key>

Sign the key with your key: gpg –sign-key <key>

Export the key to a public keyserver: gpg –keyserver pgp.mit.edu –send-keys <key>

Remember that not everyone want to have his keyy on a public keyserver. And yes there are ways to do that with kgpg, but for key signing sessions where a lot of keys should be signed it’s much more comfortable with the command line interface.
