SecureBlackbox 16: How Do I Create Keys Compatible with PGP 2.6.x?

Note: This article applies only to SecureBlackbox Legacy. For future development please consider using the latest version.

PGP 2.6.x accepts only RSA keys without subkeys, encrypted with the IDEA algorithm. Thus, you should use the following call to the Generate method:

Generate("your-password",  // key password
  1024,   // bits
  SB_PGP_ALGORITHM_PK_RSA, // RSA algorithm
  true, // use old (2.6.x ) format
  0 // never expires
);
