|Summary||0001277: PGP key signing tells me "The format of the UID was not recognized"|
|Description||When I just tried to get my PGP key signed by cacert it told me:|
The format of the UID was not recognized. Please use 'Name (comment) <email@domain>'
No valid UIDs found on your key
I can only guess what the reason is: I have a special character (ö) in my name, maybe that messes something up in the system. My UIDs look pretty normal:
uid Johannes Böck <email@example.com>
uid Johannes Böck <firstname.lastname@example.org>
uid Johannes Böck <email@example.com>
My Keyid is BBB51E42, key can be found on any keyserver.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
I created a User with
First Name: Johannes
Last Name: Böck
Additional Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Additional Email: email@example.com
on the testserver.
Signing the key with the given id worked for all 3 identities.
=> cant reproduce
Okay, so maybe it's not the special char but something else.
The self-signatues of my key are using SHA256, which is still non-standard in gnupg (which is a shame...). Maybe that's the issue?
