I Use PGP

OpenPGP is a standard for encrypting and verifying the integrity of data. This means that you can use it to transform data into something that only a single person can read. You can also use it to prove that somebody wrote something and that something has not been modified.

For example, you can use my public key (below) to encrypt a message that only I can decrypt and read. You can send the message over any medium and anyone who reads the message will not be able to know what it says.

I have also signed this paragraph with my private key. This processes creates a digital signature that only I can create. You can use my public key (below) to verify that the signature came me. If anyone modified this text in any way, the signature would not verify.

Feel free to verify this text or send me encrypted message.

Here’s the signature of the above message. (Not including this line.)

My public key:
