PGP public key

This is my public PGP Key. To make use of it, you will want to have GnuPG installed. See the related links at the bottom right of this page for more information on Public key encryption.

My key ID is

0xE2A07BC2

My key fingerprint is

46D7 CDE3 B454 6101 F222 6CFD BE88 9153 E2A0 7BC2

The uidthat goes with it is

Yan Brailowsky (YanB) yan.brailowsky ! gmail . com

(Note that the email address is obfuscated.)

This key is used for signing and/or encrypting documents, like email messages or ordinary files. I only have one key at the moment.

You can download my PGP key or find it below. But the best way to obtain my key is to get it from a keyserver like hkp://subkeys.pgp.net or ldap://keyserver.pgp.com.

If you do not have access to a keyserver, you can:

  • First save the entire PGP block into a file (click on Grab), which we’ll call ybrailowsky.asc.
  • Once you have a file with my key in it, perform the following command:
gpg --import ybrailowsky.asc

Please feel free to sign my key, if you feel that you’ve verified my identity and that the key is mine. But don’t sign it with an exportable signature.

Why use PGP?

PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) allows me to digitally sign, or even encrypt, emails or files. Signed emails or files means that you can be sure it is I who sent them. Encrypted emails and files means that only someone using the proper PGP key can decrypt them.

Only someone who can access my computer and then unlock my PGP keyring can sign anything as me. But given that only I know the password for my PGP keyring, it is rather unlikely that my signature be forged.

I use OpenPGP. Visit the GnuPG website for more.

Installing OpenPGP on OSX

I found two sites with helpful step-by-step tutorials:
Installing OpenPGP for a tutorial full of screenshots which helps you set up PGP on your computer and create a PGP key.
Digital signatures to complete the installation for Thunderbird by installing the Enigmail extension.
