gpg --yes -e -r


i want encrypt file with my friend gpg key.
but when write this commnd
gpg -e -r "my friend name" FILENAME
pgp return this line:

gpg: EC0C41CF: There is no indication that this key really belongs to the owner
1024g/EC0C41CF 2004-04-25 "Armin ranjbar <zoup@zoup.org>"
Primary key fingerprint: 4A63 BFC9 C43B 91EA F4B0 C5C4 75E8 B846 0593 9B30
Subkey fingerprint: 5C64 9530 64B3 0747 E75E 476D DF1B 3994 EC0C 41CF

It is NOT certain that the key belongs to the person named
in the user ID. If you *really* know what you are doing,
you may answer the next question with yes

Use this key anyway?

when put --yes to my command:
gpg --yes -e -r "my friend name" FILENAME

not changed in gpg output and gpg say:

gpg: EC0C41CF: There is no indication that this key really belongs to the owner
1024g/EC0C41CF 2004-04-25 "Armin ranjbar <zoup@zoup.org>"
Primary key fingerprint: 4A63 BFC9 C43B 91EA F4B0 C5C4 75E8 B846 0593 9B30

Hi!

You get this message (gpg: EC0C41CF: There is no indication that this key really belongs to the owner...) because you didn't sign your friends public gpg key with your own private gpg key. Signing the key will indicate for gpg that you have checked the authenticity of that key and verified that it really belongs to that person.

For signing the key use <$ gpg --edit-key EC0C41CF> and then the command sign.
