So for the fun of it, I’ve encrypted a message below.

I want to actually use this software. If someone who has already posted their public key in this thread could do the same I’d like to decrypt it. I’d rather figure exactly what buttons to press now then later.

Also, who’s public key did you encrypt that message with? Cus only that person can decrypt it.

It’s encrypted with several public keys.

I have never really had a serious use for encrypting e-mails, but signing is pretty useful. It would be nice if businesses started signing communications with customers.

It is signed with the key of every person who posted their key in this forum prior to that post.

Yeah I was able to decrypt this with my private key. Figuring this all out this weekend as well.

I imagine Shane McMahon may agree profusely.

On the other hand, I was able to click “verify” on what Neito posted, but clicking “decrypt” would give me “no valid data” errors. Not sure what I’m doing wrong there.

So based on my experience, the software really doesn’t like decrypting something that is also signed. All decrypt options are decrypt/verify. So if you try and decrypt the cyphertext + signature it just tells you that the signature is the one belonging to Neito. If you do that on just the cyphertext, it decrypts.

The funny thing is that this stuff hasn’t changed in forever. This is the crypto I was using when I was in high school.

There are easier practical solutions for most things. But this stuff… this is the real deal. This is what you use when you need to be sure.

I have set up my key as well, https://keybase.io/foundcuriosity is the link to it for verification.

So I was just going through here and I kinda just realized an interesting property of pgp, I’m reasonably sure that if you encrypted something, with someone else’s public key, you can’t decrypt it.

This should probably never matter but it’s an interesting property and it seems like it shouldn’t work that way. If I encrypt something using your public key and my private key. Shouldn’t I be able to decrypt it using your public key and my private key?

No.

Think of it this way. You have a key. You also have a lock that the key opens.

You want people to send you secure messages. Luckily, you can make infinity copies of the lock. You send locks all over the world you all your friends. Now they can send you things securely that only you can open.

Public keys aren’t keys. They are locks. Private keys are keys. If you lock something with someone else’s public key, only they can open it.

That’s sort of the whole point. That’s why it works, and why it works as well as it does.
