Method _setNewHome Create a new directory containing the required configuration.
Method _rawVerifySignature Internals of getVerifiedSignature.
Method _submitKey Submit an ASCII-armored public key export to the keyserver.
Method _getPubKey See IGPGHandler for further information.
Method _grabPage Wrapper to collect KeyServer Pages.
def __init__(self):
Initialize environment variable.
def _setNewHome(self):
Create a new directory containing the required configuration.

This method is called inside the class constructor and genereates a new directory (name randomly generated with the 'gpg-' prefix) containing the proper file configuration and options.

Also installs an atexit handler to remove the directory on normal process termination.

def sanitizeFingerprint(self, fingerprint):
See IGPGHandler.
def resetLocalState(self):
See IGPGHandler.
def getVerifiedSignatureResilient(self, content, signature=None):
See IGPGHandler.
def _rawVerifySignature(self, ctx, content, signature=None):
Internals of getVerifiedSignature.

This is called twice during a typical verification: once to work out the correct fingerprint, and once after retrieving the corresponding key from the keyserver.

def getVerifiedSignature(self, content, signature=None):
See IGPGHandler.
def importPublicKey(self, content):
See IGPGHandler.
def importSecretKey(self, content):
See IGPGHandler.
def generateKey(self, name):
See IGPGHandler.
def encryptContent(self, content, key):
See IGPGHandler.
def signContent(self, content, key, password='', mode=None):
See IGPGHandler.
def localKeys(self, filter=None, secret=False):
Get an iterator of the keys this gpg handler already knows about.
def retrieveKey(self, fingerprint):
See IGPGHandler.
def retrieveActiveKey(self, fingerprint):
See IGPGHandler.
def _submitKey(self, content):
Submit an ASCII-armored public key export to the keyserver.

It issues a POST at /pks/add on the keyserver specified in the configuration.

def uploadPublicKey(self, fingerprint, logger=None):
See IGPGHandler
def getURLForKeyInServer(self, fingerprint, action='index', public=False):
See IGPGHandler
def _getPubKey(self, fingerprint):
See IGPGHandler for further information.
def _grabPage(self, action, fingerprint):
Wrapper to collect KeyServer Pages.
