I tried looking at this certificate with GPA but it failed to import it,
etc. It said there were no keys. On the other hand, I would like to be
able to simply view this certificate to see its content: signer,
authority, expiration, etc. Is this possible using anything from gnupg
program or GPA. For example, I was able to locate a program on the web
that allowed me to view the detached smime.p7s signature file. I am
looking for this kind of functionality with gpg or gpa.  This is the
program I found:

I don't really want to make use of any program like this if I can get
the same information with my existing programs, but this functionality
is what I want. With it I can read everything about this certificate. Is
doing this much possible? Thanks.
