I forgot about the certifying of keys, sorry about that.
I knew openssh utilized rsa or dsa keys, but didn't know that the same
gpg keys could be used for this purpose. That's very interesting. I
suppose however the reverse is not true. I suppose I could not take
my rsa openssh keypair, and somehow make them work with gpg?
