A Quick Supplement

There's an option missing that could cause data loss in its absence:

$ gpg --armor --export > pub.asc

I'd make that:

$ gpg --armor --export-options export-local-sigs --export >pub.asc

If you have made any signatures that are not exportable (so lsign and
friends), they would not be exported otherwise. That is obviously what
it is for, but if you do this to make a backup of your own keyring, you
would still want to keep those.

And symmetrically, you'll want

$ gpg --import-options import-local-sigs --import pub.asc



I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
