I regularly receive data using pgp encryption. Typically if I run a
gpg --list-packets on a file I see the file as a "pubkey enc packet" then an item about my private key. At that point I move the files to another location for decryption and processing.
Recently one of the people I received files from in the past sent a file I could not decrypt. When I run a list-packets on those files I get:
:compressed packet: algo=1 :literal data packet: mode t (74),created 1699482604, name="A*****", raw data: unknown length
I also tried
--decrypt but was not able to access the original data/message. From what I can tell this maybe a file processed with the equivalent of a
gpg --store command. I haven't found guidance on how I can attempt to access the data in these files. Preferably using GnuPG. I am using:
gpg --version gpg (GnuPG) 2.0.22 libcrypt 1.5.3
Does anyone know how I could work with this file type? Decrypt, confirm signatures, access encrypted data.
