Kleopatra: Option "PublicKeyEncryptionOnly"
Testing, LowPublic


As there is a configuration option "SymmetricEncryptionOnly", a corresponding asymmetric option should be available:

AsymmetricEncryptionOnly: Use asymmetric encryption only. Set this option to disable symmetric encryption. Default: false

Update: We use the term "public key encryption" instead of "asymmetric encryption". The opposite of password-based symmetric encryption in OpenPGP is hybrid public key encryption.

I assume you only implement this for encryption and not decryption. The latter should always be possible.

correct, this only affects encryption
