According to, packet type 4 is: - --------------------------------------------- 5.4. One-Pass Signature Packets (Tag 4) The One-Pass Signature packet precedes the signed data and contains enough information to allow the receiver to begin calculating any hashes needed to verify the signature. It allows the Signature Packet to be placed at the end of the message, so that the signer can compute the entire signed message in one pass. A One-Pass Signature does not interoperate with PGP 2.6.x or earlier. - --------------------------------------------- ..and voila. Getting a thawte signature on your key isn't super because, personally, anyone trusting Thawte's signature is nuts. - -- Frank Tobin -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.0.1h (FreeBSD) Comment: pgpenvelope 2.8.8 - iEYEARECAAYFAjlixt8ACgkQVv/RCiYMT6MTOQCfRUyBn249Li0/uwEcOqSc+aMI SVkAmwbuhsh2ipcBhgDlY3VyyRuREW9U =Kg0d -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
