Item posted by Heiko Stamer <stamer> on Fri 09 Feb 2018 03:43:33 PM UTC.

Major improvements have been achieved in this release: For signing of a OpenPGP public key (certification) the program dkg-keysign was added. With dkg-keycheck and the option "-r" some basic checks on RSA keys can be performed. Two new options ("-f" and "-t") enhance the prossiblilities of dkg-verify. A new option for dkg-encrypt make use of zero key ID encryption privacy. Last but not least, memory locking and secure memory allocation have been implemented.

For full support of memory protection some binaries of DKGPG require the CAP_IPC_LOCK in order to lock more than the usually small limit. The superuser can set this capability by the following setcap(1) command:

# setcap CAP_IPC_LOCK+eip /path/to/binary
