Hi guys,

I am wondering...

Is it possible to have GnuPG encrypt a file with two
(or more) independent keys and create one encryped
file which can be decrypted using one of the keys and
gives the person receiving, who has only one of these
keys, the impression that there are no other keys, and
the decrypted data is the only data in the encrypted
file. But when using the other key, other data can be

Then it would be possible to just tell the FBI (or
whoever) about a key (or two of the five keys;
whatever) with which they can decrypt the encrypted
file. "No really, that is the only key...".

...just wondering.
