GnuPG Quickstart
       I love GPG and the way it works. I know there are many that complain
       about it because it has flaws. My stance on this is that I prefer
       battle-tested software with known flaws to something with unknown flaws.
       Anyway, this should get you started with GnuPG
       # Prerequisites
       Install gpg and pinentry.
           $ pkg_add gnupg pinentry
       # You need a Key
       If you want to lock and unlock stuff, you need a key. This is how you 
       get to one:
           $ gpg --generate-key
       Hop through the wizard until you see these lines:
           pub   rsa3072 2021-05-19 [SC] [expires: 2023-05-19]
           uid                      John Doe <>
           sub   rsa3072 2021-05-19 [E] [expires: 2023-05-19]
       If you see an error like:
           gpg: agent_genkey failed: Permission denied
       Add the following entry and try again.
           $ cat ~/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf
       Congratulations, you got yourself a GPG Key. This long gibberish is your 
       full GPG Key ID. Most of the time, you can simply use the last 8 
       characters. So the short version of this GPG Key is DBECC2C1.
       You can set it as default key, so it's used to encrypt stuff when no
       explicit key is given.
           $ cat ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf
           default-key DBECC2C1
       # Share the key with your people
       If you want someone to be able to encrypt something for you, send him or 
       her the output of:
           $ gpg --export -a DBECC2C1
       You can also use your email address instead of the Key ID, if you have
       only one key with it. This key is public. So put it on some webspace and
       add a link to your email header or signature.
       # Upload the key so people can find it
       You can also upload your key to a key server. For this, configure a 
           $ cat ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf
           keyserver hkp://
       Then send your key to it:
           $ gpg --send-keys DBECC2C1
       # You got a key from someone
       Add a key from someone else to gnupg, so you can use it to encrypt data 
       for this person. If the key is on your harddrive, use:
           $ gpg --import <pubkeyfile.asc>
       The file ending here is kind of undefined. Some call it .asc, .gpg, .pub
       or .key. If the key is on a key server, you can import it like so:
           $ gpg --recv-key 52BE43BA
       This would import my key. You can look at it now with:
           $ gpg --list-keys 52BE43BA
       # Encrypt a file
       This encrypts the file plain.txt with the public key DBECC2C1.
           $ gpg --encrypt -r DBECC2C1 file.txt
       Now you have file.txt.gpg, which is the encrypted version
       # Decrypt a file
       GnuPG automaticall figures out what key it can use to decrypt a file. So 
       tthis will output the content of file.txt on the terminal. If you want 
       tto save the output in a file, add -o file.txt.
           $ gpg -d file.txt.gpg 
           $ gpg -d file.txt.gpg -o file.txt
       Choose a better password prompt
       You can change the way gpg asks for the password:
           $ cat ~/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf
           pinentry-program /usr/local/bin/pinentry-curses
       Options are:
         - pinentry (sometimes also called pinentry-tty)
         - pinentry-curses
         - pinentry-gtk2: pkg_add pinentry-gtk2
         - pinentry-gnome3: pkg_add pinentry-gnome3
         - pinentry-dmenu:
       ! Note: If you use a console pinentry program and want to use gpg with a !
       ! GUI tool (like thunderbird), the password prompt will be invisible and !
       ! gpg/thunderbird will freeze.                                           "
       Makes sense, doesn't it?
       Start GPG Agent for password caching
       Put this in your .kshrc or .bashrc:
           $ cat ~/.kshrc
           export GPG_TTY=$(tty)
           gpg-connect-agent /bye
       Make a Backup
       There is no handholding cloud or support team you can call when you 
       messed up or deleted your key. So back it up safely.
       Either you backup your ~/.gnugp directory, or you export the secret 
       keys and backup them safely.
           $ gpg --export-secret-keys -a DBECC2C1 > gpg_key_backup.sec
       Seriously, don't skip this step.
       Configure Mutt
       Install mutt with the gpgme flavor. Gpgme is the "new way" of handling 
       gpg in mutt.
           $ pkg_add mutt--gpgme
       If you're not on OpenBSD, check with `mutt -v` if it was compiled with
       tthe --enable-gpgme option. Then enable it in mutt.
           $ cat ~/.muttrc
           crypt_use_gpgme = yes
       In the mutt compose view, you can now select Security Options.

           Security: Sign, Encrypt (PGP/MIME)
            Sign as: <default>
       You can change the setting with the key "p", which should bring up a
       selection menu.
