Op-ed: Why I’m not giving up on PGP | Ars Technica
Every once in a while, a prominent member of the security community publishes an article about how horrible OpenPGP is. Matthew Green wrote one in 2014 and Moxie Marlinspike wrote one in 2015. The most recent was written by Filippo Valsorda, here on the pages of Ars Technica, which Matthew Green says "sums up the main reason I think PGP is so bad and dangerous."
In this article I want to respond to the points that Filippo raises. In short, Filippo is right about some of the details, but wrong about the big picture. For the record, I work on GnuPG, the most popular OpenPGP implementation.

Op-ed: I’m throwing in the towel on PGP, and I work in security | Ars Technica
After years of wrestling with GnuPG with varying levels of enthusiasm, I came to the conclusion that it's just not worth it, and I'm giving up—at least on the concept of long-term PGP keys. This editorial is not about the gpg tool itself, or about tools at all. Many others have already written about that. It's about the long-term PGP key model—be it secured by Web of Trust, fingerprints or Trust on First Use—and how it failed me.

PGP and SSH keys on a Yubikey NEO « Eric Severance
With the new year, I decided it was time to make a new PGP key. I wanted to keep this key on a Yubikey NEO and NEO-n for every day use. By using hardware tokens like the Yubikey, the private PGP keys never need to be stored on my computer. The PGP keys on the Yubikey can also be used for SSH public-key authentication.

How to Use Gnu Privacy Guard - Community Ubuntu Documentation
GnuPG uses public-key cryptography so that users may communicate securely. In a public-key system, each user has a pair of keys consisting of a private key and a public key. A user's private key is kept secret; it need never be revealed. The public key may be given to anyone with whom the user wants to communicate.
