Can the function mpi_fromstr found in mpicoder.c can somehow be used to
generate an mpi from a public in clear text produced by the --armor
option in gnupg? and if so how to i convert the key to a format readable
by the mpi_fromstr function
Currently im am looking for a way of using public key algorithms in the
kernel and i found a kernel space conversion of parts of the gnupg lib.
done by a security project found at "http://disec.sourceforge.net/".
This seems to be able to do the job i need execpt they use the function
"MPI mpi_read_from_buffer(...)" to import a key in binary format, which
is currently not really pratical for me.
Thanks in advance
