GPG mailinglist

From TIGwiki2
Jump to: navigation, search

The TIG is exploring the use of an encrypted mailinglist for those who would like to use relatively secure GPG encryption for sending and receiving posts. (*see note at bottom of this page below public key block)

when you receive the subscription confirmation, there will be a link in the mail to edit your subscriber options (it's in the paragraph starting with "If you ever..."). Go to that URL and near the bottom of the page use the "Upload GPG Key" to send your public key to the server.

at the bottom of this page is the public key block for testpgp@pgp.colorist.org which you should import into your keyring. It starts with 5 dashes and ends with 5 dashes (hyphens).

messages you send to testpgp@pgp.colorist.org should be encrypted with the list's public key (which you just imported) and your private key.

  • you should then receive your posting back, encrypted with your public key, which you can then decrypt using your private key.

There are many mail clients that support this kind of encryption, including Apple's Mail.app, the Unix mutt(1) user agent, etc. Some configuration is required, but much of the process is automated afterwards. An understanding of GPG/PGP is very helpful. If you'd like assistance with Mail.app using GPG, it's on the web, or I might be able to help when time permits. This page will grow with more information as the idea is further developed.

  • NOTE: this new mailinglist has no specific agenda or topic yet, it is an experiment in determining whether or not it might be useful to incorporate into the TIG. There is no limit on discussion or topics, and all communication is as secure as your own key (suggestion: use 2048 bits :) )
