If you encrypt something GPG computes the validity of the keys by
looking at the key signatures and assigned ownertrust values. The
trustdb is updated as a result of this. GPG also keeps a key signature
validation status cache in the pubring.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
