Showing complete OpenPGP key flags
Closed, ResolvedPublic


--list-keys and/or at least --edit-key should show the additional key flags defined in OpenPGP:

0x10 - The private component of this key may have been split by a secret-sharing mechanism.
0x80 - The private component of this key may be in the possession of more than one person.

Event Timeline

I have attached a small patch to show this two additional key flags with "--list-keys":

Please note that the usage of this additional flags is not hypothetical. At least DKGPG uses and export them.

stm moved this task from Backlog to gpg23 on the gnupg board.
stm edited projects, added gnupg (gpg23); removed gnupg.
werner claimed this task.
werner removed a project: gnupg (gpg23).
werner added a subscriber: werner.

See rG0988e49c45 which implements time and group but not yet the split thing because we are not shure that is good idea to have this w/o any implementation support.
