On my new Windows 10 laptop I see a "Windows Hello for Business 1". Thus put everything with "Windows Hello" at the end of the list or skip unless a reader-port is set. IIRC there are device with "virtual" or "Virtual" in their name, they don't make sense for us either. I would also put devices with "SCM" or "Identiv" to the top of the list. In particular the substrings "SPR532" seems to identify the Identiv SPR332 which is what we use here and actualay a suggested reader for GnUPG VS-Desktop.

In the original SuSE's patch, _gcry_pk_sign_md function gets data template as SEXP as an argument, and the implementation does decomposing SEXP to get hash-algo. (A user of the function needs to compose SEXP with hash-algo.)

@bernhard thank you for explaining, did not mean to offend anybody. Before creating win-gpg-agent I tried to read as much as I could on a history and obviously had to study source a bit. Be it as it may - I decided to have separate wrapper, rather then contributing directly to gpg code base. There is noticable number of use cases on Windows which presently not addressed, some I believe are sitting it the queue already.

rupor-github added a comment to T3883: Add Win32-OpenSSH support to gpg-agent's ssh-agent.

Since Windows user naively could expect multiple methods of accessing certificates from different programs (or sometimes from the same program but different supported environments, like Git4Win and git in WSL) to work together transparently, win-gpg-agent covers translation of one accidentally supported method (32 bit putty shared memory) to multiple unsupported ones (named pipe, cygwin, etc). It also takes care of managing gpg-agent.exe lifetime tying it to user login session for convenience. It uses command line parameters to only to overwrite staff critical to its functionality and does not prevent user from having configuration file(s). Optionally it provides pinentry which is integrated with Windows native Crypto Vault and UX rather than using wonderful QT or GTK. As specified in documentation when developers of gpg and WIndows will get their act together and figure out what they want and how they want it - most of functionality would not be needed. I would like to point out that simply claiming superiority and not supporting cygwin (Git4Win) or working Assuan ssh socket or putty shared memory in 64 bits Windows build does not help with user experience a single bit.

Lots of detailed documentation but frankly, after a brief read I have not yet figured out what it really does. We won't support Cygwin stuff - this is all obsolete and awe also removed starting gpg-agent as a service for good reasons. Instead of starting gpg-agent with lot of command line args it would be better to put this into a per user or system wide config file.

werner added a comment to T4894: FIPS: RSA/DSA/ECDSA are missing hashing operation.

Having hash-algo in the s-exp is useful because a hash handle may carry several hashes. This is sometimes useful if you do not know the hash algorithm in advance and you need to make a guess (various PGP compatibility things in gpg). But of course we can simplify this and use the default algo from the hash handle if hash-algo is missing.

Some quick ideas: On Windows we have envvars (and APIs) to determine certain locations. There is also the registry. We use of all them. IT would be best to do this simalar on Unix. We also have a control file on Windows which switches to that portable mode; maybe it is best to do this also on Unix - A text file installed alongside gpg which gpg (common/homedir.c) uses to enable the use of certain envvars to locate the root etc..

One challenge of the AppImage is how to make gpg and its helpers use the helpers baked into the AppImage. Currently, everything is built with prefix /build/AppDir/usr. This causes

werner triaged T5554: support symmetric encryption with multiple passphrases as Normal priority.

I have no clear idea on how to style the UI for this feature. Technically it is simple but we need top query several passphrases. loopback mode with a list of passphrases might be easiest way to do that.

@fvogt I've now added a logging category. Thanks for the suggestion.

As far as I understood, $WAYLAND_DISPLAY does not need to be set because there is a well-defined default, but I guess most of the time it's set anyway.

gniibe added a comment to T4894: FIPS: RSA/DSA/ECDSA are missing hashing operation.

Ah, I understand the point (at least, partially); My understanding is: With FIPS mode, at the module boundary (== libgcrypt), it ensures that all cipher/digest/etc. operations are done under the standard compliance, and it is considered wrong (violation) when non-FIPS mode operation (such as SHA-1) and FIPS mode operation are mixed.

QGuiApplication checks $XDG_SESSION_TYPE maybe to find out whether to use X11 or Wayland if $DISPLAY and $WAYLAND_DISPLAY are both set.
