    16:49:08]<vanitasvitae> As a consequence I'd need something along the lines of : Account Identity Key owns (Device Primary Key owns Device Encryption Subkey and Device Signing Subkey) why do you need separate primary/encryption/signing keys?

    L29Ah: not every algorithm is capable of signing AND encryption. Therefore OpenPGP can use a signing capable primary key which owns an encryption subkey.

  14. vanitasvitae

    But X.509 is another giant spec :(

  15. L29Ah

    can't you just limit yourself to those that can?

  16. L29Ah

    these days asymmetric crypto boils down to old-school rsa and dandy ed25519 anyway

  17. vanitasvitae

    In theory you could limit yourself to those, but thats lame :P

  18. vanitasvitae

    Also ed25519 is also just signing right? (EdDSA)

  20. L29Ah

    yeah, seems like ed25519 keys are only usable for signing or ECDH, not for non-interactive message encryption

  21. dequbed

    Ed25519 is specifically an implementation of the EdDSA signature scheme. But you can absolutely use plain Curve25519 keys to do non-interactive message crypto. I don't think opengpg does or ever will implement that however.

    But last I checked there was talk about implementing X25519 which is the key agreement scheme based on the same curve.
