|new( %initialization_args )||This methods creates a new object. The optional arguments are initialization of data members.|
|hash_init( %args ).|
|short_hex_id||This returns the commonly-used short, 8 character short hex id of the key.|
|compare( $other, $deep )||Returns non-zero only when this Key is identical to the other GnuPG::Key. If $deep is present and non-zero, the keys associated signatures, revocations, and revokers will also be compared.|
length Number of bits in the key. algo_num They algorithm number that the Key is used for. usage_flags The Key Usage flags associated with this key, represented as a string of lower-case letters. Possible values include: (a) authenticate, (c) certify, (e) encrypt, and (s) sign.
A key may have any combination of them in any order. In addition to these letters, the primary key has uppercase versions of the letters to denote the _usable_ capabilities of the entire key, and a potential letter D to indicate a disabled key.
See key capabilities DETAILS from the GnuPG sources for more details.
hex_data The data of the key. WARNING: this seems to have never been instantiated, and should always be undef. pubkey_data A list of Math::BigInt objects that correspond to the public key material for the given key (this member is empty on secret keys).
For DSA keys, the values are: prime (p), group order (q), group generator (g), y
For RSA keys, the values are: modulus (n), exponent (e)
For El Gamal keys, the values are: prime (p), group generator (g), y
For more details, see: http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4880#page-42
hex_id The long hex id of the key. This is not the fingerprint nor the short hex id, which is 8 hex characters. creation_date_string expiration_date_string Formatted date of the keys creation and expiration. If the key has no expiration, expiration_date_string will return undef. creation_date expiration_date Date of the keys creation and expiration, stored as the number of seconds since midnight 1970-01-01 UTC. If the key has no expiration, expiration_date will return undef. fingerprint A GnuPG::Fingerprint object. signatures A list of GnuPG::Signature objects embodying the signatures on this key. For subkeys, the signatures are usually subkey-binding signatures. For primary keys, the signatures are statements about the key itself. revocations A list of revocations associated with this key, stored as GnuPG::Signature objects (since revocations are a type of certification as well). Note that a revocation of a primary key has a different semantic meaning than a revocation associated with a subkey. revokers A list of GnuPG::Revoker objects associated with this key, indicating other keys which are allowed to revoke certifications made by this key.
