On this page, we collect information on how to use keys.openpgp.org with different OpenPGP software products.
We are still in the process of adding more. If you are missing some, please write to us and we'll try to add it.

Enigmail

Enigmail for Thunderbird uses keys.openpgp.org by default since version 2.0.12.

Full support is available since Enigmail 2.1 (for Thunderbird 68 or newer):

OpenKeychain

OpenKeychain for Android uses keys.openpgp.org by default since July 2019.

Note that there is no built-in support for upload and e-mail verification so far.

GPG Suite

GPG Suite for macOS will support keys.openpgp.org out of the box in an upcoming release.

GnuPG

To configure GnuPG to use keys.openpgp.org as keyserver, add this line to your gpg.conf file:

keyserver hkps://keys.openpgp.org

Retrieving keys

Uploading your key

Keys can be uploaded with GnuPG's --send-keys command, but identity information can't be verified that way to make the key searchable by e-mail address (what's that?).

Troubleshooting

Usage via Tor

For users who want to be extra-careful, keys.openpgp.org can be reached anonymously as an onion service. If you have Tor installed, use the following configuration:

keyserver hkp://zkaan2xfbuxia2wpf7ofnkbz6r5zdbbvxbunvp5g2iebopbfc4iqmbad.onion

API

We offer an API for integrated support in OpenPGP applications. Check out our API documentation.
