GnuPG "ssb" & "sec"


Hi,

I have spent about an hour or so on google, but i could not find anything about the following:


Code:
gpg --edit-key myself
>toggle
sec  4096R/xxxxxx96  created: 2006-03-26  expires: never
ssb  4096R/xxxxxx92  created: 2006-05-21  expires: never
ssb  4096R/xxxxxx01  created: 2007-01-01  expires: never
(1)  myself <myself@gmail.com>
I am wondering: what does ssb and sec stand for?

Thank You!

GnuPG Orphaned Subkeys ?!?

Hi,

I have been experiencing something rather odd with GnuPG. I have a key, for which i created two subkeys, using addkey. They don't show up under edit-key's normal list, only after toggle.

Below is what i typed (bold) and the screen output:
Code:
gpg --expert --edit-key myself
Secret key is available.

pub  4096R/xxxxxx96  created: 2006-03-26  expires: never       usage: SCEA
                     trust: ultimate      validity: ultimate
[ultimate] (1). myself <myself@gmail.com>

Command> toggle

sec  4096R/xxxxxx96  created: 2006-03-26  expires: never
ssb  4096R/xxxxxx92  created: 2006-05-21  expires: never
ssb  4096R/xxxxxx01  created: 2007-01-01  expires: never
(1)  myself <myself@gmail.com>

Command> key 1

sec  4096R/xxxxxx96  created: 2006-03-26  expires: never
ssb* 4096R/xxxxxx92  created: 2006-05-21  expires: never
ssb  4096R/xxxxxx01  created: 2007-01-01  expires: never
(1)  myself <myself@gmail.com>

Command> delkey
Please use the command "toggle" first.

Command>
I am trying to get rid of these keys:
Code:
ssb* 4096R/xxxxxx92  created: 2006-05-21  expires: never
ssb  4096R/xxxxxx01  created: 2007-01-01  expires: never
Thank You for your help!
