OpenPGP to SSH -- Possible?


Some people have said that it's dumb to use the same key for multiple things, but for curiosity's sake, is it possible to convert one's private key to id_rsa? I know that I can convert my public key to id_rsa.pub with ``$ gpgkey2ssh [key ID] >id_rsa.pub'', and that makes me think that there should be a way to do it with my private key.

Thanks in advance!

I wouldn't say it is "dumb", necessarily, but I too am curious: why do you want to do this?

A quick search on the 'net turned up this thread -

http://old.nabble.com/gpgkey2ssh-td30025315.html

- which refers to another utility you might want to check out: openpgp2ssh.
