Translation of "key" is difficult in our context of public key cryptography.
In many case "key" just refers public key, but for key generation, it means key pair.

doc/help.zh_CN.txt

Dirmngr only handles public key. So, it's not correct to describe it as "密钥" (if it has connotation of private key).
It is better to say "公钥" adding the context.

94

"Keys" here also refer public key. three occurrence of "密钥" is better to be replaced by "公钥" adding from the context.

99

密钥" is better to be replaced by "公钥" adding from the context.

111

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Signature_Algorithm for detail.

I think that adding (美国国家标准) is not relevant.

DSA (也叫 DSS)即“数字签名算法”,只能够用作签名。

is better.

My explanation:
DSA is a specific algorithm. It was once in the DSS (Digital Signature Standard) of US, that's true. Because of that, some people (still) call it DSS, but DSS has been changing including RSA, ECDSA, and EdDSA, and forbidding the DSA.

It would be good if your translation could have nuance of one specific algorithm.

138

Hmm... Are there any neutral word for "Key"? Which doesn't have connotation of "secret"?
Here, the context is generating a key pair (public key and private key), so, translation of "密钥" is not wrong...
But, technically speaking, the capabilities are put onto public key.

143

I'm not sure if the term "身份验证" is right.

Specifically, it is used for SSH access when you login to some server.

190

example.com would be better by RFC 2606.
See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Example.com

209

Here, it means generation of key pair (public key and private key).
Yes, it would be true that "private key generation" can be interpreted as generation of key pair.
But, it is better to use neutral term of "Key" or "Key pair".

223–225

Key refers public key, here, too.

Key refers public key, here, too.

Key refers public key, here, too.

In Chinese, “密钥” make a general reference to secret keys, public keys and key-pairs, it has a broad meaning.

And the meaning "secret" of “密” is weak in this word.
In Chinese, this kind of word called “偏意复词”, people only care half of the word. That way, we only care “钥”.

So most times, “密钥” can be used as "key".
the secret key called “私钥”

Only it is really need to strictly stated a "public key", it is needly to use “公钥” to repalce “密钥”

doc/help.zh_CN.txt
94

the second “密钥” sometimes need to contian key pair

111

modify to “DSA 即“数字签名算法”(曾用于美国国家标准DSS)”
I do not want people still call DSA as DDS, so just say "used to be"

Yes.
"auth" means “授权” or “身份验证”.
When you use a key to connect the server, you use this key done a “身份验证”

190

use zhangsan@example.com
ZhangSan is a example name in China.

209

the same broad mean.

223–225

no need, or will very strange.
This translation used for 13 years.

288

change the second “密钥” to “公钥”
