I'd previously written code to make openssh use libgpgme; now I've
rewritten it so that openssh calls gpg directly to verify the host
key, in order to avoid a license conflict.
The patches are at http://www.red-bean.com/~nemo/openssh-gpg
While it seems to work reasonably well, thus far I don't think anyone
other than me has made any attempt at studying it for correctness. If
you think you might want to study it, I encourage you to do so, and
let me know what the results are.
I also would like to test whether it interoperates with the commercial
ssh's pgp support before it starts becoming available widely as a
package. If you can do that and let me know what the results are,
that would be helpful.
