I have created a test ECC 25519 subkey.
If I encrypt a file & sign a file to myself with gpg2 -esa
some_text.file it encrypts fine. But when trying gpg2 -v
some_text.file.asc I get the following error:
gpg: armor header: Version: GnuPG v2
gpg: public key is 3EF4BBBB
gpg: using subkey 3EF4BBBB instead of primary key D236473E
gpg: encrypted with 256-bit ECC key, ID 3EF4BBBB, created 2014-01-02
"Peter Michael Humphreys (My Master Key RSA)
<eagleeyes426 at yahoo.com>"
gpg: decryption failed: No secret key
When listing my secret keys I get a # symbol next to the above key in
question is that normal?
