HOW TO SPECIFY A USER ID
By key Id.
This format is deduced from the length of the string and
its content or 0x prefix. The key Id of an X.509
certificate are the low 64 bits of its SHA-1 fingerprint.
The use of key Ids is just a shortcut, for all automated
processing the fingerprint should be used.
When using gpg an exclamation mark (!) may be appended to
force using the specified primary or secondary key and not
to try and calculate which primary or secondary key to
GPG uses by default the last created subkey.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
