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.
