I have recently tried and was keen to see that Proton Mail supports WKD.

$ gpg --locate-key [email protected]
gpg: key 4DE32C2A10A7EBC2: public key "[email protected] <[email protected]>" imported
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:               imported: 1
pub   ed25519 2021-10-13 [SC]
uid           [ unknown] [email protected] <[email protected]>
sub   cv25519 2021-10-13 [E]

So here is quick instruction how to setup WKD for any email (i.e. not hosted by Proton Mail).

First you need to create empty file relative to your webserver ROOT.

/srv/www/fizjoterapia.uk$ mkdir -p .well-known/openpgpkey
/srv/www/fizjoterapia.uk$ touch .well-known/openpgpkey/policy

The policy file acts as a marker for clients to confirm that WKD files exists on this server.

The WKD is designed to facilitate end-to-end encrypted email communication. So GPG keys are looked by email address. It is obvious to look for keys at the HTTPS server running on apex email domain. The file with GPG key is saved under path hu\<SHA1 of email address encoded using the Z-Base-32>. hu stands for “user hash”. Get your hash by running:

$ gpg --with-wkd-hash -K [email protected]
sec   ed25519 2019-05-17 [SC]
uid           [ultimate] Physio Effect JB Ltd (NI661516) <[email protected]>
              [email protected]
ssb   cv25519 2019-05-17 [E]

And save binary form of public key inside .well-known/openpgpkey/hu directory (note the lack of the usual –armour flag):

mkdir -p .well-known/openpgpkey/hu
gpg --export [email protected] > .well-known/openpgpkey/hu/15siaihjsf4kyfkzxrqe7r5gqqzr5f39

I have found [https://metacode.biz/openpgp/web-key-directory](WKD checker) by running some Google search. Here are my results and I’ve confirmed that ProtonMail sends now encrypted emails to WKD enabled email.
