Enigmail Posteo: Default keys are not accepted for WKD/WKS
Open, NormalPublic


Posteo only accepts keys without a username for WKD / WKS publishing.

Enigmail, by default, does not create such keys. Either the key creation in Enigmail needs to be changed or GnuPG's wks-client should be called and filter / create a new userid on the fly.

Currently Enigmail does not use GnuPG's WKS tools so that older GnuPG versions are also supported.

(btw. same goes for gpgol)

Event Timeline

aheinecke updated the task description. (Show Details)
aheinecke added a project: gpgol.

Enigmail used to use gpg-wks-client. @kai implemented it back then and we had a milestone meeting to show that it works with posteo.

I know, I helped implementing that. Patrick changed it.

An argument could be that Enigmail is currently vulnerable to WKD stalling, Keyring pollution etc. everything that dirmngr protects against.
