gpgsm create a certificate signing request (CSR) but "gpgsm --verify:
verifies CMS signed data - these are entirely different things.  The CSR
must be given to a CA so that the CA can generate a certificate for
you.  With that certificate you can signed data (using "gpgsm --sign")
which anyone can later verify with "gpgsm --verify"



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
