GPG Suite 2019.1

New default key server

  • 2019.1 introduces keys.openpgp.org (hagrid) as the new default key server.
  • keys.openpgp.org provides better performance and will better protect your privacy by giving you control over the data being published. Searches via email will only return keys for which the associated email addresses have been previously verified. More details in our Knowledge Base Article.
