What I did to export a secret key from GPG 1.0.1 (Linux) to PGP 6.5.1i
(Linux) is

gpg --s2k-cipher-algo=CAST5 --s2k-digest-algo=SHA1 --compress-algo=1
--edit-key keyid

> passwd
You need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for user: "Michael C Taylor <>" 1024-bit DSA key, ID 56B435B4, created 1999-09-09 Enter the new passphrase for this secret key. [hit enter twice] You don't want a passphrase - this is probably a *bad* idea! Do you really want to do this? y Command> save gpg --export-secret-key --no-comment -a keyid >keyid_secert.asc pgp -ka keyid_secert.asc wipe keyid_secert.asc wipe keyid_secert.asc [Now restore passphrases!!] pgp -ke keyid gpg --edit-key keyid
> passwd
> save
