Hint: PGP does it every time you send an encrypted email. Either you are using the phrase "secret key" in a context with which I am unfamiliar, or you do not understand PGP. PGP/GPG does not transfer your secret key component when encrypting a message to another. It is possible to encrypt a message to someone else's public key without *having* a secret key of your own in the first place. -- Zed Pobre <email@example.com> a.k.a.
