Subject: verify doesn't like OpenPGP cleartext signatures
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 454b
Hello, The attached script illustrates a problem we've seen with cleartext signatures. Although the RFC1991 "type" of the signature is 01 (clear text), the Crypt::OpenPGP::verify function does not canonicalize the input before hashing it. The GnuPG options to generate the signature were: gpg --no-force-v3-sigs -bat foo.txt The patch attached, whilst a little hackish, seems to fix the problem without breaking any of the tests in the test suite.
