Issue/Introduction

PGP Command Line does not honor or create suggested output name using USP

Consider the following scenario:
A file "test.txt" is encrypted and signed with PGP Command Line.  As no "-o" operation is specified in the command, the output file would be "test.txt.pgp".  Rename this file to "newfile.pgp".

Although this file has been renamed, during encryption, a "suggested output" standard was used so that a decryption routine should honor the suggested output filename.  In this scenario, when running the following command, as there is no "-o" option specified, the expected output filename should be "test.txt", even if the file has been renamed:

pgp --decrypt newfile.pgp --auth-username "skm" --auth-passphrase "skm" --usp-server keys.manageddomain.dom --debug --auth-passphrase "skm" --debug

When using PGP Command Line 10.3.2 and the "-usp-server" option, the suggested output filename is not honored for encryption, or decryption.

 

Resolution

This has been resolved in PGP Command Line 10.3.2 MP11.
