gpg: public key decryption failed: wrong secret key used

Postby melvin » Fri May 21, 2010 12:45 pm

During decryption, gpg may sometimes give this error message.

The most common cause of this error message:
1) Encrypted file is corrupted
2) Encrypted file is transferred via FTP/SFTP using ascii mode instead of binary
3) Wrong public key was used to encrypt the file
