GPG Sign Your Git Commits

I have written and talked before about GPG and the need for trust on the internet. Getting started with GPG and using it on a daily basis is, when you’re using the right tools, not all that hard, but still quite technical. Today Google announced they are working on a Chrome extention to enable end-to-end encryption using OpenPGP. As a developer, I do more than dispatching emails all day. On occasion I write code.

Pretty Difficult Privacy

Disclaimer: I could write books about online privacy, freedom of speech and how encryption fits into that picture. There are others out there who can do a better job at that and who have way more experience in crypto than I have. So, I got a keybase.io invite. Awesome. But what problem is keybase trying to solve? I created my first GPG key in 2000 by way of checking out shiny new things.
