I have a query about using PGP. I have downloaded PGP2.63i from the
internet (I am in Ireland). I am trying to develop some code in
VB4(pro.edition) which will allow some data to have a digital
signature applied and the message encrypted before transmission. I
want to know is it possible to write a procedure in VB that will pass
commands to PGP so that the encryption of the message would be
automatic,i.e. that the use of PGP would be transparent to a person
running my applicaton.
Also, I would like to store the private key ring and/or the pass
phrase on an external smart card.
I have the following queries:
1) Can I change the default location of the keys? (i.e.to a specific
which will hapen to be the Smart Card) and
2) If I use the PGPPASSFD to automatically provide the phrase, is
PGP A.P.I.s to run PGP from a program without requiring any manual
I look forward to yuour comments/replies,
