You're taking that passage out of context. If you read it in context, it's clear that "optional" means optional from a *security* standpoint. You're also ignoring the part that I quoted for you previously. Here it is again: "You may experience trouble when attempting to use a PGP key with a passphrase along with Split-GPG and Enigmail. If you do, you may need to remove the passphrase from your (sub)key(s) in order to get Split-GPG working correctly. As mentioned above, we do not believe PGP key passphrases to be significant from a security perspective." What this means for you: You're experiencing trouble when attempting to use a PGP key with a passphrase along with Split-GPG and Enigmail, so you may need to remove the passphrase from your (sub)key(s) in order to get Split-GPG working correctly. - -- Andrew David Wong (Axon) Community Manager, Qubes OS https://www.qubes-os.org -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- iQIcBAEBCgAGBQJYU9yRAAoJENtN07w5UDAwNpUQALklVgty82Xp468B+ncoL/xO eC8cmtPzy8bdXT8Q7DvhnyGbYHgx8tSfV5UoqkuVE8k8QBqKyMihbrwjX2r3b8iu Las9J5vLPVLSCfwg1erAKzr8yU2TPgs5PXVQYAYBBUGUXG+vGx/0sfruQXPgvwyj hKVbR4N4U84df0p+0+kKiepjsglpGcKEHGFzU3o2neDUvJGqlRqL3TKHNAnzFuki 5N0ypLJVyVEwnb6LzfFrGyrM4J1uyzWFdD+XGRridquE2r7QHEIoawGQdCfGxxad 0hEIVRL66p1qI5uoG86fTrbDFjx/+pLOqxTEibj9vf33sMqF0BLCsPYNQT+O0mmq GNKg3OrsqWNXPsuTtv2LsnWhlUNac7NkiqKcwCA57wbYkZWR7awIF10+Tca2bKS9 YvgiVdrIxTixEplCD43cxcdVSOaA+XSwIZF8qr4QEwxlHfqwFBRc7Wr/b52viCc4 DaoZdfD9lTxqGf3PiGqnXd1CoiYhOf+CpJRPIsLhzw6OGre4eK0yJeZFegYz1L5F 4U73NfTDL8AgMlZ7Krf+mvzL5+0CCiidNBgjZO7L6Cw2Gj9jw75Du+4igJhupZRi TGc/7rH8YI6j6cW1yYQuxvxm8Nj6OxegAfHfZqg0vbCKAiH154t5ZYtCfCIvOkWI +Q5aNLo+WDXEAj3bTsov =vxTK -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
