opgpcard - OpenPGP Card

Latest stable version Travis-CI

Create a VCard, a QR code and/or a printable business cards including OpenPGP key and fingerprint.

opgpcard is a tool to create a VCard [0] including OpenPGP [1] key and fingerprint, a QR code [2] of the VCard, a SVG [3] image formatted as a "business" card [4] to print including the QR code and or a batch of 10 those "business" cards to print in DIN4.

The idea comes from the Debian pgp-tools [5] gpg-key2ps script, which output a PostScript file which has your Key-ID, UIDs and fingerprint nicely formatted for printing paper slips to take with you to a signing-party.

However the slips do not have the format of a standard "business" card and they tend to be lost. They also do not include a QR code, quite useful these days to do not have to type all the OpenPGP fingerprint characters.

Sadly, most of the Address book [5] applications out there, do not implement the VCard properties [6] for OpenPGP, so when the QR code in these cards is scanned, the Address book application will import the mail address, but probably will ignore the OpenPGP key and/or fingerprint.
