Latacora - The PGP Problem
- pgp is crusty and hard: gnupg is sprawling and unwieldy
- there are alternatives for some things:
- chat: signal, XMPP+OREMO
- sending files: wormhole
- backups: tarsnap
- signing packages: signify/minisign
- application data: libsodium
- encrypting files at rest: not a lot yet?
- identity management is still the elephant in the room: lawyers use PGP, if not for email

oss-security - Re: Recommendations GnuPG-2 replacement
"It's worth repeating: if the Acronym Agencies of various countries aren't sponsoring arms-length keyservers where they get all the traffic logs for some percentage of keyserver traffic, then they're incompetent. If they provide a useful public service and folks choose to use it, then they get the normal operator logs, because they're the operators. All legal. You don't know who is running the keyservers. You don't know what's happening to the logs. You don't know that the keyservers are trustworthy. They are, at most, a useful swamp for collecting the data from so that clients can do WoT calculations without caring about fishing in a contaminated swamp, as the WoT _if done right_ takes care of filtering out the sludge. If you care about privacy in who you talk with, get the keys from some other path, or run a keyserver, and use hkps with a certificate under your control."

Keyringer: encrypted and distributed secret sharing software
"i use keyringer since years for group password sharing from command line through git with openpgp and now it even has subgroup capabilities in addition to handling multiple repos…. it is not pass drop-in compatible tho."
But still the same problem as pass: files are not necessarily database entries, and 2PC would be nice.

Using YubiKey as a SmartCard for GPG and SSH
Complaints from lobste.rs users about trying to use yubikeys as GPG smartcards (it's mostly GPG's fault for differing between platforms)
