gpg --export-secret-keys -a >foo.asc You should also export your public key; do this before you do the above. So if you want to export the key 0x12345678 do this: gpg --export -a 0x12345678 > pub+sec.asc gpg --export-secret-keys -a 0x12345678 >> pub+sec.asc Note: The forthcoming release of GnuPG does require that you use the option --allow-secret-key-import to _import_ a secret key; however it will tell you this if it sees a secret key.
