With opublic key cryptography, you use the secret key to *decrypt*
data.  The public key is used for encryption.

You might want to read a basic text book on cryptography before using
Libgcrypt.  For example:

  author =3D      "Niels Ferguson and Bruce Schneier",
  title =3D       "Practical Cryptography",
  language =3D    "USenglish",
  edition =3D     "first",
  publisher =3D   pub-WIL,
  address =3D     pub-WIL:adr,
  pages =3D       "xx + 410",
  year =3D        "2003",
  ISBN =3D        "0-471-22357-3",
  URL =3D         ""
