Abstract
Go to top

Many people do not have any clue about PGP encryption/decryption. It was same for me however I had to learn it the hard way. Explore the topic The BCT PGP/GPG Public Key Database: Stake Your PGP Key Here to understand why you need to know it. If you are an Electrum wallet user then I am pretty sure you have seen a signature link next to the installation file. You also seen a warning notification on the top which talks about a fake copy of Electrum.


Long story short, PGP gives you extensive privacy and you can easily validate the authentic source of your received file/text. In this tutorial we will learn...

# How to create PGP Signed message and signature
# How to verify a PGP Signed message and signature
# How to encrypt a message
# How to decrypt a message

Once you get a good grip of these 4 basics, I believe you will be able to grab the rest without having any further assistance.



A Better Understanding
Go to top

Before we start, it's gonna help you if I give you a brief. PGP consist of two Keys...
1. Private key <=== You need it to decrypt a content
1. a) You also need a passphrase, in other words a strong password.
2. Public key <=== You need it to encrypt a content

Think about a very sensitive message you want to email to your friend. You don't want any gov agency or any spy read the message. These people can easily access your email server. To avoid it, ask you friend to give his PGP public key. Once you have it then encrypt the message and email the encrypted message to your friend. Now only your friend can decrypt it because he knows the private key.

Warning: Do not share your private key and passphrase with anyone.


Getting Started
Go to top

Download and Installation Go to top
You will need Kleopatra desktop application. Click here and download gpg4win-3.1.1.exe (this is the current version, you might find the same or a different version but don't mind, whatever the version they will have on their server, it will be downloaded). Once download done, go ahead and install the application (I assume, you know basics of installing an application). Once installation done, you will be seeing Kleopatra icon on your desktop.

          6.3. Click on Upload Public Key To Directory Service... -> wait a little bit -> Click OK
          This will upload the Public Key online in the PGP Directory Service
           But before that we need to check if the directory domain is still active. In case of inactive domains please follow the following setting.
An error occurred while trying to export OpenPGP certificates.
 Server indicated a failure gpg: keyserver send failed: Server indicated a failure
-snip-
Try changing the OpenPGP keyserver.
If you are using Windows OS and Kleopatra as in the tutorial above, go to Settings -> Configure Kleopatra ...
In the OpenPGP Keyserver column (default: hkps: //hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net), enter the keyserver that is still active/accessible, https://pgp.mit.edu; http://keyserver.ubuntu.com/; or other servers; then click OK.

-snip-


Here's an example of my public key:
http://keyserver.ubuntu.com/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0x58bc997445d96f68db65c169a2ca884f183d22e9
         Loading... Loading...
          Don't worry if there is an error. You can do this later after proper configuration.

          Click OK and Finish

          You should be seeing your newly created PGP user ID
          Loading...

          6.3.a. Right click -> Click on Publish on Server
          Even after changing the server if you keep getting error then do not worry. You do not need any server for your public key. You can save it in your computer
          Loading...

          Save it in your computer in a known directory. This is your public key

Some of the example PGP Public Keys you might be interested to explore or have it imported.

Exercises - Home Work
Go to top

Welcome to the exercises section. Before we start, here is what you wanna do.
1. Create a New Key Pair with the following information

Code:
         Name: ex-<your bitcoinTalk username>
          Email: <yourBitcoinTalkUsername@BitcoinTalk.com>
i.e:
Code:
         Name: ex-mdayonliner
          Email: <mdayonliner@BitcoinTalk.com>
We don't actually want to use our real name and email address for these exercises. The username part with the prefix ex- will help me and others to identify that we are communicating with you.

2. Have your Fingerprint published on the online server. It's gonna help me and other members to access your public key for encrypted communication.

We will have two assignments to practice. I will think of an award later for the successful participants.

Assignment 1: PGP Singed Message and Signature - Coming soon.
Assignment 2: Encrypt and Decrypt Message - Coming soon.


Click here for my Fingerprint on the server.

Answer

Please feel free to ask any question in the comment. I will add them in here with the answer. If I do not have the answer then I will try to seek senior members' help or I will find an answer for your question. Make sure the question is related to the topic.

Husna QA: The topic PGP/GPG Signed Message - Public Key in his/her local language was the starter for me to start my learning. I am happy that I was good enough to understand the translation in English.
TryNinja: Provided some URLs which cleared my head to understand better.
hugeblack: Suggested the idea of adding some example PGP Public Keys.
All the members who were leaving their PGP PUBLIC KEYs all around the forum. Seeing these encrypted codes were interesting for me and finally I decided to investigate what was it all about.

I had some problems with "Decrypt an Encrypted Message," but will try to follow your method "I just wake up."
  - Excellent explanation and attractive design.
You can add some important PGP Signatures [theymos, ThomasV, Bitcoin core,.....etc.]"I have created a short list here"----------->Some of PGP public keys [you should import]

try to add this site to your tutorial ------> https://keybase.io "I noticed many people using it"

Hello hugeblack,

Will do mate. I am still working on this tutorial. After posting the topic I crushed last night. I just woke up now and noticed I became a Full Member. It's exciting and I am going to celebrate the happiness. I will add few more alternative ways for PGP using https://keybase.io and others soon.

Appreciate your feedback and thanks for the compliment. It took me long time to find a good banner for the top  Smiley

Mostly privacy. You don't want the NSA reading your emails, do you?

Quote
PGP is useful for two things: 1. Privacy and Security, and 2. Authenticity. By privacy, I mean that you can prevent people from seeing things. For example, you can encrypt an email to someone, or encrypt a file with a list of passwords. By Authenticity, I mean that you can ensure a message was sent/written by the person you think it was, and that it wasn't modified by a third party. Of course, these two can be combined. I'll discuss these further.

Tell me please. When I delete the Kleopatra and install it again, my certificate immediately appears in it. Where is it stored on the computer, if I did not import it into my computer?

You will need to import your private key. It's important you always keep the backup of your private key.

You do not understand me. Sorry for my English. When I install the program a second time, it automatically shows me my certificate (name and email).
I entered the installed program only:



The program does not ask me to enter anything when you first enter.

Before removing the program, I should to delete the certificate manually?

@madnessteat
The program stores your keyrings here: C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\gnupg
So even if you uninstall the software your keys should remain in that folder. That is why you see them the 2nd time you install Kleopatra on your device.

An error occurred while trying to export OpenPGP certificates.
 Server indicated a failure gpg: keyserver send failed: Server indicated a failure

This is what i got while trying to publish on directory service. Do you know what i did wrong?

Quote
It is because the SKS PGP Keyserver is being abandoned due to peoples abuse of known public keys on the server. I stumbled on this article when I tried looking for other keyserver lookup as alternative as I was also following the same tutorial. But still, even without uploading it to a keyserver, you can still verify the pgp signature of an application and encrypt/ decrypt a message.

I don't know why people like to abuse things like this. Indeed i was able to encrypt a message and @OgNasty was about to decrypt it.

Unfortunetly, there is no other guides show you how to interact with pgp signatures here in bitcointalk. I also remember how i followed this guide and face the same error but i didn't look further. Better to ask for opinions directly from users community .
Thanks for bumping this topic, i was looking for it .

The Death of SKS PGP Keyservers, and How First Look Media is Handling It
The SKS keyserver network is dying. This has been a long time coming. The nail in SKS’s coffin came in late June when someone abused important public keys that people rely on.

An error occurred while trying to export OpenPGP certificates.
 Server indicated a failure gpg: keyserver send failed: Server indicated a failure
-snip-
Try changing the OpenPGP keyserver.
If you are using Windows OS and Kleopatra as in the tutorial above, go to Settings -> Configure Kleopatra ...
In the OpenPGP Keyserver column (default: hkps: //hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net), enter the keyserver that is still active/accessible, https://pgp.mit.edu; http://keyserver.ubuntu.com/; or other servers; then click OK.

Here's an example of my public key:

@Husna QA,
Thanks you for the heads up. I've now gone past the same problem they encountered from following the tutorial. I have now changed the default key server to https://pgp.mit.edu/ and was able to lookup my "PGP Public Key Block".

Is there any other workaround where I can directly paste my "Fingerprint" to MIT PGP Key Server for lookup instead of manually creating a link of
Code:
https://pgp.mit.edu/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0x3466CFA83DEBE525F40446E5AC1D3A48A6161C75

In MIT Key Server, there are three sections and I assume the "Extract Key" is the section I will be using to search for my public key though I am not sure what string I will be using? Is it the FINGERPRINT itself?

If you have successfully uploaded your public key at https://pgp.mit.edu/ or other Key servers, you can replace my fingerprint below with your own:
https://pgp.mit.edu/pks/lookup?search=0x58BC997445D96F68DB65C169A2CA884F183D22E9
http://keyserver.ubuntu.com/pks/lookup?search=0x58bc997445d96f68db65c169a2ca884f183d22e9&fingerprint=on&op=index

You can also use http://keyserver.ubuntu.com/ for Search key/Submit key; Click Advanced Options to view Index options/Index type.

-snip- In MIT Key Server, there are three sections and I assume the "Extract Key" is the section I will be using to search for my public key though I am not sure what string I will be using? Is it the FINGERPRINT itself? -snip-
MIT PGP Public Key Server brief guide:

Extracting a key
  • Type the text you want to search for in the ``Search String'' box. If you want to look up a key by its hexadecimal KeyID, you have to prefix the ID with 0x
  • Select either the ``Index'' or ``Verbose Index'' check box. The ``Verbose'' option will display signatures on keys.
  • Press the ``Do the search!'' button.
  • The server will return a list of keys matching the search text. The page will have links for every KeyID, and every bracket-delimited identifier (i.e. < marc@mit.edu>). Clicking on the hypertext link will display an ASCII-armored version of the public key.
Currently, I am personally more comfortable using http://keyserver.ubuntu.com/ instead of https://pgp.mit.edu/
