.asc. And to restore your GPG trust database, run the following command: # Will delete the existing trust database. $ rm ~/.gnupg/trustdb.gpg gpg --import-ownertrust < /path/to/trustdb-backup.txt For minimal backup you only need to save your private key, assuming your public key is posted on keyservers like keyserver.ubuntu.com. But for complete backup of your keys you need to export both keys and ownertrust db. To export your keys and ownertrust db, run the following commands on your termina Back up your keys. To generate base64-encoded ASCII-armored backups, issue these commands: gpg --armor--export > pgp-public-keys.asc gpg --armor--export-secret-keys > pgp-private-keys.asc gpg --export-ownertrust > pgp-ownertrust.asc. Done! Remember that your private key should be kept, well, private. Even with a passphrase, revealing your secret key reduces the security of your PGP key to just that passphrase A good solution to safely backup a gpg private key is to print it on paper. There is paperkey for this, see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Paperkey. One can also use off-the-shelf software for creating QR codes, see https://www.saminiir.com/paper-storage-and-recovery-of-gpg-keys
Creating a backup/exporting the keys. Once we created our gpg keys, and in time, added public keys of some recipients to our keyring, we may want to create a backup of our setup. The most simple way we can proceed is to create a tarball of the entire ~/.gnupg directory. All we have to do is to run: $ tar -cvpzf gnupg.tar.gz ~/.gnup Backup. Copy both id_rsa and id_rsa.pub from ~/.ssh/ to a USB drive. Identify the private key by executing the following command. $ gpg --list-secret-keys --keyid-format LON So, I've spent some time playing around with the various ways to export/import (backup/restore) keys. Method 1 Backup the public and secret keyrings and trust database cp ~/.gnupg/pubring.gpg /path/to/backups/ cp ~/.gnupg/secring.gpg /path/to/backups/ cp ~/.gnupg/trustdb.gpg /path/to/backups/ # or, instead of backing up trustdb... gpg --export-ownertrust > chrisroos-ownertrust-gpg.tx
Instead of backing up an entire directory you can export (create a backup copy of) the key using e.g. gpg -a -o seckey.asc --export-secret-key ABCD1234 and import it again (after moving to first card) with. gpg --import seckey.as In bitcoin (and other crypto currencies) usually a mnemonic phrase (also commonly called seed) [*] (commonly 12-24 human memorable words) are created as a backup which can deterministically create all wallet sub public and private keys. So one only has to remember these words and would always be able to restore its keys
Here are the instructions I followed to back up and then restore my GPG & SSH keys. It could be useful if you're moving to another computer or reinstalling operating system.

Create SSH and GPG Keys. Our configuration of duplicity will use two different kinds of keys to achieve a nice intersection between convenience and security. We will use SSH keys to securely authenticate with the remote system without having to provide a password. We will also use GPG to encrypt the data before we transfer it to the backup location. Create SSH Keys. We will generate an RSA.
# extract the primary key gpg -a --export-secret-key firstname.lastname@example.org > secret_key # extract the subkeys, gpg --import-ownertrust # remove backup GPG directory, which will clear *all* secret keys $ rm -rf .gnupg.bak . Finally note that in the above manipulations, secret key material is stored in the clear on disk. You may want to securely delete those files (using, for example, nwipe. To find your GPG key ID, look in the Key ID column next to the newly created key. In most cases, if you are asked for the key ID, you should prepend 0x to the key ID, as in 0x6789ABCD. Now you should make a backup of your private key. Creating GPG Keys Using the Command Line. Use the following shell command: gpg2 --full-gen-key Pushing key updates from gpg to keybase. If you've made some changes to your keys, perhaps added an email address, or changed the expiration date, you'll want to take your keys from gpg and push them back up to keybase. This can be done really easily. # Tell keybase to fetch your key from GPG and update it on keybase $ keybase pgp updat If this file is not available, gpg defaults to the new keybox format and creates a file pubring.kbx unless that file already exists in which case that file will also be used for OpenPGP keys. Note that in the case that both files, pubring.gpg and pubring.kbx exists but the latter has no OpenPGP keys, the legacy file pubring.gpg will be used Using GPG seems creates keys in the user home holder, and prompts for a passphrase. Basically, the process seems to be too opaque for my taste - Joel L Jan 17 '12 at 15:22. Should tar xz in the second set of commands be tar -xz instead? - Kenny Evitt May 29 '16 at 20:58. 1 @KennyEvitt: You can use it with or without the -- Florian Diesch May 30 '16 at 0:23.

After re-installing the aforementioned GPG Suite or Gpg4win software again (or restoring it from a backup), re-import your public key from your USB drive backup. Windows users: Open Kleopatra, click the Import button > Navigate to your USB drive > Find and select your public key file and click Open
Ich kann GPG das tar-Archiv verschlüsseln, bevor ich es split, mit Public-Private-Key-Verschlüsselung und mit einem oder mehreren Empfängern (Admin öffentliche Schlüssel). Im Falle einer Wiederherstellung muss jedoch mindestens ein Administrator seinen privaten Schlüssel auf den Backup-Server legen, da die Dateien zu groß sind, um irgendwo anders entpackt zu werden Run gpg --version and /usr/bin/gpg --version and check whether they are the same.. Duplicity might fall back to version 1.x.x, whereas your terminal might have an alias to invoke GnuPG version 2.x.x. In that case the key is created/imported with GnuPG 2, but GnuPG 1 might not know about it(?
Another is immediately pushing the backup to write-only destination (eg a S3 bucket where you can put new content but not read or modify anything already present). Asymmetric key usage (eg generate a session key for the data, use GPG or RSA to protect that key) do ensure that the attacker can't decrypt the backups if they do get their hands on.

Refreshing Your Keys. Periodically, you can ask gpg to check the keys it has against a public key server and to refresh any that have changed. You might do this every few months or when you receive a key from a new contact. The --refresh-keys option causes gpg to perform the check You can use the gpg command for complete key management including setting up keys, change key passphrase, list keys and much more. Change the passphrase of the secret key. The syntax is: gpg --edit-key Your-Key-ID-Here gpg> passwd gpg> save You need type the passwd command followed by the save command at gpg> prompt to change the passphrase for.

Lernen Sie, wie einfach der Einstieg in die Kryptografie ist und beginnen Sie am besten mit dem Gpg4win-Kompendium Once GnuPG is installed, you'll need to generate your own GPG key pair, consisting of a private and public key. The private key is your master key. It allows you to decrypt/encrypt your files and create signatures which are signed with your private key. The public key, which you share, can be used to verify that the encrypted file actually comes from you and was created using your key. It. Creating and Importing a GPG Key for Encrypting and Decrypting Backups. If the key administrator responsible for backing up and restoring Key Trustee Server and Key Trustee KMS does not already have a GPG key pair, they can create one using the gpg --gen-key command. The following example demonstrates this procedure: Note: By default, gpg --gen-key fails at the password prompt if you have.
