I am working on a project where we are using GPG in an automated environment to pull encrypted files from a DMZ server and automatically decrypt them and move them to a specified location. All this is working fine. The problem I have is I need a script (Perl) that an administator can run to add new public keys to the key ring the application uses. The application runs on a linux server under a user ID, mover, and we do not want to have administrators logining in as this ID. My question is: is there a way that another user can access mover's GPG key ring to add and sign public keys? I have created an Admin group of which mover is a part of. Also I do not want to open up the permissions too much on the .gnupg directory, the secret key does not use a passphrase to allow for automation. Any insight will be greatly appreciated.
