GPG problems
Google/translate1Thank You!1Good Post!0Bad Post! link
OK, I've tried 3 different programs to produce key pairs (GPG4Win, gapgpstudio1_0_1 and the older command line GPG 1.41),
No matter what encryption scheme I choose, no matter the key-lenght in bits, no matter what... the generated public key always resulted invalid both when typed or uploaded!
Is the challenge about producing a PGP (GPG) key pairs or about finding a compatible version of a program?
thanks, saiwa

It is simply about setting up "GWF3 GPG encryption".
I am using php gpg plugin, and the uploaded data should be in ascii armor format.

Maybe this helps Smile

Hi gizmore,
thanks for the help, but the message I received is not about ascii armor format, but about the fact the key seems invalid...
I can generate the ascii armor format error if I change the encoding of the key txt file let's say from ANSI to UTF-8, but this is a different matter (I think)

Also, I uploaded my key to the MIT gpg public server. Also their app requires a full ascii armor format, but there my key was uploaded and verified without no problem.
If you want, you can check my key at http://pgp.mit.edu/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0xABF9A0C376B5D965
