Generating a new GPG key

Run gpg --gen-key, select option 1 (RSA and RSA), enter the maximum key size (4096) and then simply follow the rest of the instructions on-screen.

If you intend to use the key for signing you may want to publish it to a keyserver with gpg --keyserver --send-key KEYID where KEYID is the id of the key you just generated. For more in-depth information, see the GnuPG website.
