♥ Mailvelope Public-Key Cryptography Get Mailvelope
OpenPGP and therefore Mailvelope use public-key cryptography which means a key is split into two parts: public and private keys with different purposes:
--Public key – Used to encrypt a message. Can and should be available to everybody.
--Private key – Used to decrypt a message. Needs to be stored securely. Access is restricted by password.
This concept is illustrated on the page "How Gpg4win works". Gpg4win is another application based on OpenPGP and the same principles also apply to Mailvelope.
In order to send encrypted emails to a peer, you must have the public key of the recipient. Therefore, before secure communication can happen between two people, they must exchange their public keys with each other. There are multiple ways that public keys can be distributed:
--Sent via email to specific correspondence partners. See the section Key Export for how this can be done with Mailvelope
--Publish the key on a website for everyone to access. The currently available Public Keys shown below. If you need to send an encrypted email to one of the people listed below you will need their Key.
