Sorry, this is serious brokenness which is going on for years. For the
records let me conclude:
Jessie will be released with a default GNOME and an optional XFCE
desktop featuring these bugs affecting GnuPG
- S/MIME (gpgsm) does not work at all.
- Smartcards for GPG won't work.
- GnuPG's included ssh-agent can't be used.
- The passphrase protection of GnuPG private keys has been reduced to
a security level we had before 2010.
- Brute forcing symmetric encrytion is as easy as before 2010.
(~300 times faster on an i5-2410M, 2.3Ghz)
This has been justified by a better looking passphrase entry dialog for
GPG keys in GNOME's keyring-manager.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
