How to generate new OpenPGP key in Ubuntu

Asked by Edmond Condillac on 2012-12-07

Hi

My user information shows that I have not signed Ubuntu Code of Conduct. To sign online, I need to register an OpenPGP key.
 To generate a new OpenPGP key in Ubuntu the Passwords and Encryption Keys tool is needed. I cannot find this tool in Ubuntu 12.10 version, which is supossed to be located at System > Preferences > Passwords and Encryption Keys.

I would be most grateful for your kind help.
