User IDs and Sub-keys
Fri Mar 16 11:13:15 2001
I'm new to GPG. I don't understand how user IDs or additional sub-keys work.
I've read the manual, the faq and browsed the last few months of archives
for this list. Perhaps I missed something. Perhaps this is a problem with
my email software (Kmail 2.1).
What I am particulalrly interested in is being able to establish separate
email IDs using the same key. For instance, one for skribe and one for the
name Joe Bloggs. Currently, when I sign a document the default key (skribe)
is used, even when I stipulate that the Joe Bloggs ID should be used in the
email client. This somewhat cramps my anonymity =). Do I require separate
and distinct key-pairs for this or is there a way to do it with the one
Additionally, Could someone please direct me to some additional
documentiation (apart from the manual) as to how to use the IDs and sub-keys,
to sign and encrypt?
