What are the names of the opengpg private and public keys


greetings,

I want to store my opengpg keys in a safe place but I don't know the names of those keys. I admit, I don't use opengpg at all and I just started with it a few days ago.

I know ssh more than opengpg. For example, in ssh, the keys are named id_rsa and id_rsa.pub.

In opengpg, my directory looks like this

Code:
ls -1 .gnupg/
gpg-agent-info
private-keys-v1.d/
pubring.gpg
pubring.gpg~
random_seed
secring.gpg
trustdb.gpg
which are the public and private keys?

If you're making backups, you might want to take a look at "paperkey"
