Abstract

   The OpenPGP development community benefits from sharing samples of
   signed or encrypted data.  This document facilitates such
   collaboration by defining a small set of OpenPGP certificates and
   keys for use when generating such samples.

1.  Introduction

   The OpenPGP development community, in particular the e-mail
   development community, benefits from sharing samples of signed and/or
   encrypted data.  Often the exact key material used does not matter
   because the properties being tested pertain to implementation
   correctness, completeness or interoperability of the overall system.
   However, without access to the relevant secret key material, a sample
   is useless.

   This document defines a small set of OpenPGP certificates and secret
   keys for use when generating or operating on such samples.

   Samples are provided for two "personas", Alice and Bob. Alice uses
   keys based on the Ed25519 elliptic curve algorithm, but Bob is a bit
   behind the times and has a 3072-bit RSA key.

1.1.  Requirements Language

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and
   "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in BCP
