Mixmaster is an anonymous remailer. mpgp is a light-weight OpenPGP
implementation, primarily used to diagnose issues with OpenPGP keys and
messages handled by the Mixmaster remailer software.
mpgp can encrypt, decrypt and sign a message using the Mixmaster
OpenPGP library. The message is read from the standard input or the
specified filename. The output will be written to the standard
output. When called without arguments mpgp decrypts from the standard
input. It asks for a passphrase when needed.
Print a summary of command line options.
Print the current version, authorship and copyright information.
Encrypt a message with the first OpenPGP key from the public key ring
whose contains keyname as a substring.
Make a signature of the message with the first OpenPGP key from the secret
key ring, or the first key whose contains keyname as a substring if
Encrypt with symmetric cipher only.
Encrypt with symmetric cipher only using the new OpenPGP format.
Decrypt a message using passphrase if specified or asking for it if
needed. It also verifies its signature.
Generate new OpenPGP key pair with the given keyname as user ID. If
r is specified the OpenPGP key will be created using the RSA
algorithm, otherwise the ElGamal algorithm will be used. bits is the
key length and its default value is 1024.
Create an ASCII OpenPGP armored message. If - is specified mpgp
will remove ASCII armor.
Specifies that the message is in binary format.
The Mixmaster OpenPGP module reads its configuration from the file
mix.cfg in its working directory. The configuration file consists of lines of
and of comments, which begin with a
Path to your public OpenPGP key ring. Default:
~/.pgp/pubring.pgp. (Windows default: PGP registry value.)
Path to your secret OpenPGP key ring. Default:
~/.pgp/secring.pgp. (Windows default: PGP registry value.)
These filenames can be overridden by setting the corresponding configuration
option (given in parentheses).
Mixmaster configuration file.
OpenPGP public keys (PGPPUBRING).
OpenPGP secret keys (PGPSECRING).
mpgp command was written by Ulf Moeller as a test suite for Mixmaster
2.9s internal OpenPGP support. It was enhanced and debugged primarily
by Janis Jagars for use as a light-weight stand-alone OpenPGP application.
