How do I use the same private/public key pair at several accounts?
I've been using GPG for some time, mainly to secure the transmissions of
to be executed on a remote account or to update web pages etc.; as
was done only by me or some script, there was no problem with using a
key for every account involved.
Now, however, I want to start using GPG for regular e-mail, and I am not
sure on how to handle the following situation:
- There are two accounts, A and B;
- any mail that arrives at A and survives spam filters is kept for some
as a local copy at A and forwarded to B as well;
- I want to be able to decrypt the message at both A and B.
Clearly I could use two different keys for the two accounts and tell
that they should encrypt the message to both A and B, but this is
to say the least; the alternative is to have the same private key on
I know how to generate a key with GPG at A, but how can I get B to use
key for decrypting; in particular, how can I transmit the private key?
sufficient to just copy a couple of files from one machine to the other?
will that affect any private keys already in use there?
