Usage Tutorial

Generating keys:

Before sending or receiving encrypted messages, one must generate a personal key pair.

cryptoclip generate [myname]

Sending a message:

To send a message to someone, they must first provide you with a copy of their public key (.pubkey) – after that, you can encrypt messages that only they will be able to decrypt.

cryptoclip encrypt [theirname]

This will copy the encrypted message to your clipboard, which you can send to the recipient via any means. The contents cannot be read or altered in transit, and only the holder of the recipient’s key may decrypt it.

Receiving a message:

To receive an encrypted message, the sender must provide you with an encrypted message block that was made out to your public key. To decrypt the content, you must your your private key.

cryptoclip decrypt [myname]

This will decrypt the message and copy the result to your clipboard.
