I had some questions about some implementation details:
How does gnupg with rsa encryption encrypt text, especially how big is the
block size? I can't find no information about it.
Or does encrypt it every character?
e.g. 'A'^e mod n (I don't think so)
For example the block size is 50 byte, how does gnupg handle a text
like: "hello world"?
when I list keys, all keys a represented by digits and characters (and
unprintable characters without -a). My rsa implementation only show
digits (of course), why? And how can I extract e and n of a public key?
sorry for this questions but I can't find some information in the net
UNIX is user friendly. It's just selective who the friends are.
