I have read about the following key capabilites:

- sign
- encrypt
- authenticate
- certification

When I generate an RSA key, GPG provides the capabilities
sign, encrypt and authenticate (in expert mode), but
not certification.

Is certification somethin that is actually implemented
or planned for the near future? What usage is expected
to depend on this capability?

Cheers, Olaf
