GnuPG (the GNU Privacy Guard or GPG) is GNU's tool for secure communication and data storage. It can be used to encrypt data and to create digital signatures. It includes an advanced key management facility and is compliant with the proposed OpenPGP Internet standard as described in RFC2440. As such, it is meant to be compatible with PGP from NAI, Inc. Because it does not use any patented algorithms, it can be used without any restrictions.
major feature: A new experimental key database daemon is provided. To enable it.Put "use-keyboxd" into gpg.conf and gpgsm.conf. Keys are storedin a SQLite database and make key lookup much faster. New tool gpg-card as a flexible frontend for all types of.Supported smartcards. New option --chuid for gpg, gpgsm, gpgconf, gpg-card, and.Gpg-connect-agent. The gpg-wks-client tool is now installed under bin; a wrapper for.Its old location at libexec is also installed.Tpm2d: New daemon to physically bind keys to the local machine.Gpg: Switch to ed25519/cv25519 as default public key algorithms.Gpg: Verification results now depend on the --sender option and.The signer's UID subpacket. T4735 Gpg: Do not use any 64-bit block size cipher algorithm for.Encryption. Use AES as last resort cipher preference instead of3DES. This can be reverted using --allow-old-cipher-algos.Gpg: Support AEAD encryption mode using OCB or EAX.Gpg: Support v5 keys and signatures.Gpg: Support curve X448 (ed448, cv448).Gpg: Allow use of group names in key listings. e825aea2ba .Gpg: New option --full-timestrings to print date and time.Gpg: New option --force-sign-key..Gpg: New option --no-auto-trust-new-key.Gpg: The legacy key discovery method PKA is no longer supported.The command --print-pka-records and the PKA related import and.Export options have been removed.Gpg: Support export of Ed448 Secure Shell keys.Gpgsm: Add basic ECC support.Gpgsm: Support creation of EdDSA certificates..Agent: Allow the use of "Label:" in a key file to customize the.Pinentry prompt. 5388537806 Agent: Support ssh-agent extensions for environment variables.With a patched version of OpenSSH this avoids the need for the.
