PGP 101 - Public vs. Private key - Which one do I handle?

PGP 101 - Public vs. Private key - Which one do I handle?

(1)
If I am sending you encrypted data and you are trusting the source, then
-          I generate the public/private key with passphrase
-          I encrypt with my private key
-          You decrypt with the public key

(2)
OR if you want to know who is sending you encrypted file then
-          you generate public/private key pair with passphrase
-          I encrypt with your PUBLIC key
-          You decrypt with your private key



Keywords: #pgp #privatekey #publickey #key #encryption #security
<THE END>
