Why do you lump these users together? At a first glance it seems more
logical that they have separate system accounts, or at the least
separate GnuPG homedirs (and hence agents).

They shouldn't even have access to the encrypted private key in the
first place.



I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
My key is available at <>
