Re: [Evolution] Fetch PGP Public keys from LDAP?

What I'm really after is away to simplify and nearly automate the use of pgp encryption for emails within our organization. Already we have the robust mail clients like Evolution, Thunderbird, and Outlook (for Windows users) access our common LDAP service for our organizational contacts, so it would be convenient to have everyone's public key hosted there also, and automatically used to encrypt mail to them.

Is it possible to have Evolution fetch someone's PGP public key from an LDAP server and use it automatically to encrypt mail for that recipient? It would be nice if PGP public keys could be stored in Evolution Contact records and used automatically for encrypting mail sent to such contacts.
GPG supports fetching keys from LDAP keyservers, so you might be able to get the functionality by setting auto-key-locate keyserver-URL.
True - with the caveat that LDAP (port 389) is likely to be blocked across boundaries [firewalls] in a lot of environments.
heh. If he wants to fetch data from LDAP, he better doesn't have a firewall blocking it ;) With keyserver-URL method you specify a url to the ldap server you want to query (eg. your company LDAP). Alternatively, you could set that as your default keyserver, and specify just keyserver for auto-key-locate. _______________________________________________ evolution-list mailing list evolution-list gnome org To change your list options or unsubscribe, visit ...
