OpenPGP Web Key Directory

Web Key Directory (WKD) allows an OpenPGP client to discover a public key from an email address.

It works by converting an email address e.g. into a special URL and requesting it by HTTPS:

This returns the OpenPGP in binary format (not ascii-armored).

Github WKD + redirect

As a temporary solution we're using Github to host our public keys, and using a simple redirect in our nginx configuration:

# /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/fluidkeys.com_HTTPS

rewrite ^/.well-known/openpgpkey/(.*)$$1 redirect;

In the future Fluidkeys will host and automatically update our WKD keys.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
