Hey Hans,

nice writeup, and thanks for mentioning our project "OpenPGP Keychain".

A small correction: We are transmitting the whole key via NFC not just
the ID. In my tests this worked without problems, but I have to admit
that large keys take some time to transmit while you have to hold both
devices together the whole time.

Tech details (could be interesting): We registrered the mime type
"application/pgp-keys" for NDEF_DISCOVERED (see
If you use the same mime type, it should be possible to share keys from
GPG4Android to OpenPGP Keychain and vice versa.
