Feedback on two year use

Good evening, team,

I have been using GPGTools for almost two years. In the meantime I have been improving my knowledge about cryptography.

To my opinion, the most important problem for email signing and ciphering is that it is not used by enough people. GPG is a very powerful tool but most people are still reluctant to prompt commands in a Terminal.

GPG Keychain is really useful, nevertheless, as far as I'm concerned, some features could be implemented.
* Access to expert mode for key generation and/or edition, for instance to generate a master key that only has Certificate ability. * Cold storage of the secret master key while keeping only some secret subways on the computer * Authentication subkeys generation * OpenGPG card management

I really think this operation could be made easier than from Terminal.

Best regards

    Hi Vincent,

    thank you very much for your feedback, we really appreciate it.
    We do plan to implement the features you describe. It will certainly take some more time, but especially much improved OpenPGP card management and external key storage is very important for us to have.
