Encryption is made with the public key of the receiver and everybody can to it. Signature is made with the private key which must stay private to your server. If you want to use it in a shell script, their must be no passphrase, so if your server is compromised, the key is also compromised and the message cannot be trusted anylonger. Such a protection only protect the message during its travel between your server and you. -- Loïc "heaven is not a place, it's a feeling"
