It's complicated; suppose that a CA signs your key. Your key is going to be a second-level CA for another organisation. The top level CA wants to restrict you to signing keys for people who are in your organisation. The regular expression defines which keys are in your organisation and which are not; for example it could restrict you to signing keys which are under a certain domain. Next question... Does the GNU PG support regular expressions? ---------------------------------------------------------------------- phone +44 (0) 20 8542 7856, fax +44 (0) 20 8543 0176, post: Skygate Technology Ltd, 8 Lombard Road, Wimbledon, London, SW19 3TZ
