I'm new to PGP encryption. I have a few files that I would like to encrypt before storing them on a cloud storage.
I learned that I could encrypt a file using one the following two methods:
Method 01: gpg -c filename
Method 02: using a public-key
For example (for personal use): gpg --encrypt --recipient 'my_name' filename
I just wanted to know whether the both methods produce the same results or not. Thank you.
