Keybase on Kali Linux

Linux Security

Kaybase.io is a great platform for sharing PGP keys and verifying your identity online. The Linux tools the platform works with, however, don't run with Kali Linux out of the box. The reason is simple: Root (UID: 0) isn't supported. So how do you over come this limitation? In my case, my laptop is only used by me, and no one else.



NB, you should be using a dedicated machine to store your private keys. If not, you do run the risk of administrators being able to try to break in to keys / steal your keystrokes / etc.
