GnuPG settings

For new machine, here is my GnuPG settings.


I create .gnupg/gpg.conf file with the following content.

personal-digest-preferences SHA256
cert-digest-algo SHA256
default-preference-list SHA512 SHA384 SHA256 AES256 AES192 AES CAST5 ZLIB BZIP2 ZIP Uncompressed

default-key 0x4ca7babe

Let gpg-agent manage SSH key

I deactivate seahose-agent. Also, I deactivate gnome-keyring managing SSH key.

$ gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/gnome-keyring/daemon-components/ssh false

Then, I create .gnupg/gpg-agent.conf file with the following content.
