I can't seem to find an answer to this, so I apologize if this has been brought up before. How do I export my own keys so that I can use gpg on multiple computers? Is this even a good idea from a security standpoint?
Yes, --export-secret-keys is for exporting your secret keys to a file and on the "other" machines, you will --import the file.
The security implication is that if any one of the accounts gets compromised, your secret key is compromised.
