PGP - perl module to work with PGP messages


use PGP;

$message = new PGP $pgppath;


The PGP module allow a perl script to work with PGP related files.


The PGP::Keyring object is used to perform key management functions.


The PGP::Key object is used to store the individual key information. It is primarily used by the PGP::Keyring object and for passing to the various methods that accept key parameters to encrypt and sign documents.

Future revisions will provide actual methods to do key comparison for the trust and validity factors. These methods will provide a standardized way to determine which keys can be trusted and which keys should not be used at all.
