GnuPG Interface

Where is my Data?

BatzenCA does not interfere with your normal OpenPGP public-key or secret-key ring. Instead, it uses an independent GnuPG key database or keyring. By default it is located in $HOME/.batzenca/gnupg. This default can be changed by setting the environment variable BATZENCADIR. If BATZENCA is set, then the GnuPG keyring will be located in $BATZENCADIR/gnupg. The currently used home dir can be queried as follows:

>>> session.gnupg.home_dir


Changing session.gnupg.home_dir has no effect.

To work with the GnuPG directly you can run:

$ gpg --homedir=$HOME/.batzenca/gnupg
