Hello PGP World
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1
FYI World, I now have an official public key.
It is availble here: http://pgp.mit.edu:11371/pks/lookup?search=ron+gross&op=index
Specifically, it is this one: http://pgp.mit.edu:11371/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0x6016B419893E4632
I've been meaning to generate a public key for some time, and finally I had an actualy need for this.
(A company I'm doing business with asked me to verify my identity and communications via PGP)
If you want to do the same:
1. Download gpg from http://www.gnupg.org/
2. Install (it took quite some time ... I thought it's stuck, but it finished at last).
3. Install some frontend for it. GPG is a command line utility only. I'm trying out Cryptophane - http://code.google.com/p/cryptophane/
The full list of frontends is here: http://www.gnupg.org/related_software/frontends.html
4. Create a private key for yourself (make sure to use a strong passphrase) & back it up.
5. Upload the public key to mit servers: Keys-->Send To Server
6. That's it - you can sign messages from now on.
7. You can also use it for encryption ... read a tutorial if you're interested.
Here is the public key itself, as retrieved from http://pgp.mit.edu:11371/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0x6016B419893E4632
