webpg-chrome : Installation : Chrome on OSX

In order to use the WebPG for Chrome on OSX, you will need the following:

  • gnupg
  • gpg-agent

The easiest way to satisfy the requirements on OSX is to install GPGTools - https://www.gpgtools.org/

A working key agent is absolutely necessary, as, the web browser client should never be asking for the passphrase to unlock a private key - I have this belief for the following reasons

  1. The user should not be encouraged to type their passphrase into anything other than the key agent (ESPECIALLY NOT THE BROWSER)
  2. Passing around the passphrase within the browser is a dangerous proposition
