Generating a new Gnupg (gpg) key
- Log into your account via ssh
- Type the Command: gpg --gen-key
- It will walk you through a few steps (all are fairly self-explanatory):
- Select Encryption Type
- Enter Key Size(1024 is standard)
- Enter Expiration Date
- Enter Name
- Enter Email Address
- Enter Comment(Description of the Key)
- Confirm with O
- That's it! To view your keys that you created, use the command: gpg --list-key
