I am using the GPGme library to write a program that
will decrypt files. The files to be decrypted are
encrypted with exactly one out of three possible keys.
When I decrypt those files interactively, gpg shows me what
key was used and I type the passphrase corresponding to that
particular key. The problem is, I am not sure how to do
that within a program:
- should I keep on trying the 3 private keys (passphrases)
until one of them works? (trial and error)
- is there any way to request the key from the file,
in advance, and use the corresponding passphrase?
