werner closed T4273: agent: Request insertion of smartcard when no card present as Resolved.

The behaviour related to ssh key access is due to the way ssh works: After a connection has been established to a server ssh presents to to the server all identities (public keys) it has access to (meaning it has a corresponding private key). Thus we can't tell ssh all the keys we have because that would be an information leak and may also take too long. Because the user may in some cases not want to use the ssh-agent but resort to ssh command line input of the passphrase, we do not insist on using a key known by gpg-agent.

dkg added a comment to T3767: simplify sharing dirmngr's across multiple GNUPGHOMEs.

One of the things that dirmngr has going for it is that it tracks the current network state, and it would be nice to be able to reuse that state across sessions. If an ephemeral keyring can't use a shared dirmngr, there are fewer arguments for having dirmngr in the first place, and people might be more justified in replacing it with things like https://gitlab.com/anarcat/scripts/blob/master/openpgp-key-get

aheinecke claimed T3902: Use the term password instead of passphrase.

First of all I find PIN a very bad term. "Personal Identification Number" for example for my Gnuk token is confusing. I use a string there,... So let us use PIN only where it really has to be a number. Otherwise it is a Password.

Feb 4 2019, 1:47 PM · FAQ, Documentation, gnupg (gpg23)
werner added a comment to T3902: Use the term password instead of passphrase.

Despite that I created this task, I am still not not convinced that removing the term passphrase is a good idea. If we do this in gnupg we would need to change all strings to make it clear that the passphrase is used to protect one's own key and has nothing to do with encryption etc. In fact the term PIN would be better because it is common knowledge that you use a PIN to get access to something you own. There would be less confusion on the purpose of the passphrase. Sure PIN is usually considered to be a number. However my bank allows a string to be used as, what they call, PIN.
