To contact me via e-mail, I prefer encrypted e-mail messages, and so you can download my Public PGP Key (inside there is the email address) by clicking here (the fingerprint is 9A85D44AE2D38F19D5FFE2C8655812FCA35B817F).

Otherwise, you can retrieve my e-mail address by running the following command from the Terminal app:

gpg --keyserver hkps:// --receive-keys 9A85D44AE2D38F19D5FFE2C8655812FCA35B817F

I decided to set up my own WKD (Web Key Directory) to provide more security and to make it easier to identify the public keys of my email addresses. Currently, for emails of the and domains, it is possible to “discover” the public PGP keys and check their validity on the WKD with the WKD checker di Jonatan Miarecki (Metacode WKD Checker has been sunsetted on 1.05.2024).

ProtonMail - If you are a ProtonMail user, retrieve my e-mail address by running the following command from the Terminal app (the fingerprint is C10FEA6AF2197D3E733262E03112451F7B96A03E):

 gpg --keyserver hkps:// --receive-keys C10FEA6AF2197D3E733262E03112451F7B96A03E

Thus, if possible, please send me encrypted e-mails message only.
