[HDGEM] How to create GPG or GPG2 Keys Using the Command Line

Creating GPG Keys Using the Command Line

  1. Use the following shell command:
    ~]$ gpg2 --gen-key

To generate a key, use gpg2 –full-gen-key to choose all the key creation options.

If you are using GPG on the graphical desktop, use gpg2, because the resulting keyring and files integrate with desktop applications like Evolution and Seahorse.
