  • The gpg command line utility:
    1. Generate a new keypair:

      gpg --full-generate-key --openpgp
    2. Export the keypair to a file (use the same email address that you used for generating the key pair):

      gpg --export -a "" > public.key
    3. Download the GoodData public PGP key.

    4. Import the GoodData public key to your keystore:
