I'm also going to going plug #OpenKeychain for a minute.
I have email addresses at my domain now. I also use #GPG keys. I revoked ones associated with my other emails in favour of the new. I also use a password manager that encrypts my passwords with my key. The now-revoked key does nothing. So I don't have access to any of my passwords. Well OpenKeychain has a wonderful backup feature that lets you export a key and import it on your computer. I was literally sick until I found that feature 😌
@amolith you can still decrypt with revoked keys.
Also that backup feature is amazing.
I'm guessing you use zx2c4's pass password manager. If so, here's how you can keep them with you on the go.
That said OpenKeychain is very cool indeed, it even supports hardware tokens (like Yubikey) and (with Termbot) can be used to login to remote SSH servers! (I actually used that to fix one minor thing while on vacation :) )
@kensp @amolith @gentoorebel I'm using a family chat with >5 people and haven't had any problems, it worked out of the box. Granted all members already knew each other. Setting up OpenKeychain and OpenPGP keys for all of them would take a lot of time...
Maybe your contacts used servers that did not whitelist OMEMO keys? (there is a plugin for that for Prosody, ejabberd has it built-in in newer versions).
@kensp Well that's good to know lol. Thanks!
@amolith I've been digging into this whole GPG world recently also. I haven't put it to use yet though. I want to switch to pass, but I share my keepass file with my wife right now and its way easier for her to just know the passphrase than to deal with keys.
Really interesting stuff. I can see how this free encryption was so revolutionary years ago. Of course it's still more important than ever, but I don't think people realize that yet.
