OpenPGP does not support X.509. PGP has a proprietary, incompatible and undocumented extensions to OpenPGP which seems to allow this. At some time in the future we _might_ start to work on a extension of the _OpenPGP_ standard to add some kind of X.509 support to the protocol. ciao, Werner -- Omnis enim res, quae dando non deficit, dum habetur et non datur, nondum habetur, quomodo habenda est. -- Augustinus
