Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Pinentry should have a command line option to disable the emacs-based pinentry.
The motivation is to prevent attacks on GPG Agent. See T2034 for details.

gpg-agent requires that you add
--enable-emacs-pinentry.
to gpgagent.con. This is similar to
--no-allow-external-cache
but even not enabled by default.
