I'm encrypting a file secure black box and c#.net
using file streams and the following line of code.
pgpWriter.Encrypt(inF, outF, 0);

Is secure black box pgp storing either or both of the following inside the pgp encrypted (target) file?
1)source file name
2)target file name

If so, is there a way to set either of these properties to some value other than the real file names?

Example: I encrypt xyz.tmp to abc.tmp then rename it to 123.csv. When the receiver decrypts it they get ?xyz.tmp? or ?abc.tmp? (I'm not sure since these are guid's randomly generated).

Would it make any difference to secure black box (ie how it stored the file names internally in the output) if the output was named abc.tmp.pgp or abc.pgp?

None are stored. However, there's one thing that IS stored - the value of Filename property. This property is what you must set.

SecureBlackbox doesn't care about file names passed to EncryptFile() method.
