I suggested an idea to encrypt all PMs locally (offline) using javascript before sending them:
https://bitcointalk.org/?topic=651386

I hope it gets implemented.

But meanwhile I encourage everyone to implement this separately from the forum. A simple way is:

  • Create a PGP key if you don't have one already
  • Use this online tool (or any other) to get the details of the public key
  • From there, get the Key ID (8 bytes in hex) and the Public Key value (MPIs in base64)
  • Edit the same site (http://www.hanewin.net/encrypt/PGcrypt.htm) to create a personalized form. It will encrypt using your PGP key so only you can decrypt it using your PGP private key.
    You just have to change the values of JS variables keyid and pubkey

For example, I created my own encryption tool:
pgp.ecua.mobi/encrypt/
http://bitPGP.com/ecuamobi/ (I no longer own this domain)

This is very easy to implement and would give some extra security.

If there are enough interested people, I can offer this service for a small fee:

  • Create bitPGP.com/<username>  (I no longer own this domain)
  • Create a customized form so people can encrypt using your public PGP key

The fee would cover the hosting, the domain and my work. Or I could just send the source code if you want/can host it yourself.

I know it's possible (and possibly better) to use Linux/Windows/Mac/Android tools, but this option includes much more people who otherwise wouldn't mind installing the required app.

Let me know if anyone is interested. If not, I encourage you to do it yourself.

I've created a sample here:
http://bitpgp.com/ecuamobi/  (I no longer own this domain)
https://ecua.mobi/pgp/


I decided to grab bitPGP.com anyway, so I will offer this service for free (tip are appreciated).

If you want this, just PM or post:

  • Your requested address below bitpgp.com/ (ex: your BTCTalk username)
  • Your public PGP key

No longer available.

They have something like this over at keybase.io. Maybe you can implement some of those features with BitPGP?

Thanks. I'll consider that.

But I want to implement something more related to Bitcoin too: something like a double PGP/Bitcoin verification.

Meanwhile, I'll continue with the PGP forms.

Also, if somebody can check (audit) the JS source code of bitpgp.com/ecuamobi please do.
