To send me secure email, you’ll need a copy of my GPG public key. In order to install it run the following commands on your terminal.
NB: You’ll need the gpg command line utility installed.
Download the public key from the OpenPGP keyserver
gpg --keyserver keys.openpgp.org --recv 0x73DD404E7526A8CD
Confirm the key is successfully installed
You should see my public key successfully installed. By default ubuntu stores GPG public keys in a keyring within your home directory:
Alternatively, if you’re using a recent version of Mozilla Thunderbird, you can do the following. Go to:
Menu > Account Settings
Select your preferred email account.
Once selected, choose End to End Encryption.
Select OpenPGP Manager.
Under OpenPGP Manager, select Keyserver > Discover Keys Online.
Enter KeyID: 0x73DD404E7526A8CD
In the next dialog, select the Accepted radio button, then choose OK again.
My public key should now be imported on Mozilla Thunderbird.
