I am new to pgp and would like to understand the minimum flags that I
should be using for my encryption/decryption needs. I just want to encrypt
files for decryption by one other person. We have exchanged public keys.
I have read in several places that I can run:
gpg -e filename
In ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf file, I set:
which I assume means that the default key (I only have one) is used for
both encryption and decryption. However, I receive:
No such user ID.
I have not uploaded my newly created key information to a keyserver, Is
that a requirement? What are good 'best practices' flags that should be
used with encryption and decryption with pgp?
Thanks in advance, any guidance is greatly appreciated.
