GPG: generating a key compatible with PGP
I am currently using http://www.myfax.com/ to send and receive faxes at work.
I need the faxes to be encrypted. They offer public key encryption with PGP 9.8.2
They just need my public key to be compatible with their PGP version.
I found a few statements at the GPG site, which may not be true for newer versions of gpg:
Since this is a work related task, I attempt to avoid using trial and error here, because an incompatible key may provoke loss of crucial information. It is difficult to estimate how long it would take them/me to find out that the key provided was not compatible; but probably it would entail a significant loss for the business.
I would appreciate some pointers as to how to generate a PGP compatible key with gpg.
Thanks for reading this.
I actually think some trial and error is going to be needed to test this properly. Perhaps install their same version of PGP on a test box so that you can run through some contrived experiments?
Carefully read through the gpg(1) manpages. There are lots of options that enable PGP-workaround / PGP-related RFC compliant features. I'm not sure which combination of those options is going to get you what you need for their PGP version.
