Lemme start at the clean slate with what has happened till now.
For exercises, understanding & usage will be using the stable 2.0.3
release version in Ubuntu till I'm not clear in all the aspects.
gpg --armor --sign --encrypt -u 0x729A8B17 -r 0x729A8B17 myloveletter.txt
You need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for
It works also with
gpg --a --s --e --u 0x729A8B17 -r 0x729A8B17 myloveletter.txt
which resulted in a myloveletter.txt.asc file yippy!
I was also able to decrypt it
ou need a passphrase to unlock the secret key for
user: "shirish some phrase here <shirishag75 at gmail.com>"
2048-bit ELG-E key, ID some id key here, created 2007-05-05 (main key
gpg: encrypted with 2048-bit ELG-E key, ID some id key here, created 2007-05-05
"shirish some phrase here <shirishag75 at gmail.com>"
gpg: Signature made Friday 18 May 2007 12:29:23 AM IST using DSA key ID 729A8B17
gpg: Good signature from "shirish some phrase here <shirishag75 at gmail.com>"
ok the only thing I have changed in the decryption is
ID key for ELG-E key as well as some phrase here instead of the
actual phrase given.
All in all things seem good till this point.
Now tomorrow will be trying with gpg2 , one thing though :-
Mr. Werner Koch had usefully provided the difference between 1.4.6 & 2.0.3
Now in that 1.4.6 had been shown as using ELG-E
while 2.0.3 as using ELG (I guess that's the final) hopefully
shouldn't spring surprises.
I am sorry if I come out as paranoid but till I don't understand how
things work, I feel its best to be conservative.
