GNU-PG's FAQ claims that RSA support is included since gnupg-1.0.3.
However, I have tried both gnupg-1.0.3 and the most recent
gnupg-1.0.4, neither can decrypt message encrypted by PGP using RSA.
For example, here is a sample message I got (even after I imported all
PGP keys into GNU-PG):
$ gpg encrypted-by-pgp-rsa.pgp
gpg: Warning: using insecure memory!
gpg: protection algorithm 1 is not supported
gpg: encrypted with 1024-bit RSA key, ID 5A66A2A1, created 2000-10-29
gpg: public key decryption failed: unknown cipher algorithm
gpg: decryption failed: secret key not available
Here is what gnupg-1.0.4 claims in its NEWS file:
* RSA is supported. Key generation does not yet work but will come
I can bear the "key generation does not yet work" part. However, if
RSA encryption/decryption also does not work, then what does "RSA is
Anybody has luck in this case? Or the FAQ and NEWS file are dishonest?
