Hello all,

I've tried long and hard to find an answer to this question, with no luck. GnuPG does this through their trustdb.pgp file, but the only similar thing I've found in SBPGP is the ElPGPTrust that belongs to each ElPGPPublicKey class.


Since the Trust attribute of the ElPGPPublicKey is read-only, how does one go about assigning trust to a public key?

I assume this is separate from simply signing the public key with one's secret key, right?


Or is there another way to construct a web of trust, using SBPGP?

Hi. Are you using the latest version of SBB?
Property Trust of TElPGPPublicKey is read-only, but you can set needed trust level using properties of PublicKey.Trust.
And, also, you can use property KeyTrust of TElPGPPublicKey to set trust level in an easier way.

Hi again.

KeyTrust seems to be exactly what I was looking for. It wasn't mentioned in the documentation, though.

I'm using version 6.0.0.144

Yes, it is not documented yet, but it will be fixed ASAP.
