Then I wanted to push-private to be able to use it in other devices, and that fails for me. Therefore I ended up googling and here. Add a comment. Sorted by: Reset to default.

Save it in a file and then you can then import it with: gpg2 --allow-secret-key-import --import PrivateKeyFile Also save your public key to a file. And import this one with the following command. Thanks for the answer! Unfortunately this solution doesn't work for me though because I chose not to store my private key on keybase.

Related That's why it works everywhere. You can think of this in a similar way to how mp4, MKV, avi, mov, flv, and others can all contain h. Encrypting with your private key and decrypting with your public key is nonsense. Repeat: You can't get there from here. It don't do like that. Let's say you're sending very small, twitter-sized messages.
You might think that if you could encrypt them with your private key have others decrypt them with your public key that you save on bytes by only sending one encrypted message rather than the plaintext plus the or bit signature, effectively halving your size.
Bob signs the message with his private key Bob uses Alice's public key to encrypt his message Bob gives the message to Eve to send to Alice Eve cannot verify if the message originated from Bob or someone else Eve cannot read the contents of the message because it's encrypted Eve cannot tamper with the contents of the message because it's signed In reality this would be done in conjunction with message digests for signatures and symmetric keys for encryption, but the oversimplification above does the job for the basic premise.
Symantics To "encrypt" and to "sign" are almost the same thing as are "decrypt" and "verify" also very similar , but they are subtly different. Securing Keys Typically you may encrypt your private key with a passphrase-derived symmetric key. Let's get RSA keys! Here we're gonna create two bit RSA keypairs.
The reason we need two keypairs is that Bob and Alice each need to have their own keypairs. Using OpenSSL. Make keys for Bob mkdir -p. Instead you create a SHA hashsum of the data and sign it with the sender's Private key. Likewise you create a random bit AES key and encrypt it with the recipient's Public key.
