You can inspect the data with a command like:
$ gpg --list-packets "C:/Documents and Settings/steve.strobel/Application
(that's one line)
It will spew a lot of stuff like the following:
:public key packet:
version 4, algo 1, created 1258029184, expires 0
pkey: [2048 bits]
pkey: [17 bits]
:user ID packet: "Peter Lebbing <peter at digitalbrains.com>"
:signature packet: algo 1, keyid AC46EFE6DE500B3E
version 4, created 1382876493, md5len 0, sigclass 0x13
:public sub key packet:
version 4, algo 1, created 1258031707, expires 0
You can send me the oddly large key and a normal one, and I can take a look at
it and compare them. I won't spend a whole lot of time on it, but it sounds like
it will rather stand out, since it is, well, large :).
I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
