comment Implement GPG Verification (Bitcoin-OTC)
That makes sense. How would this work if I got the user to decrypt a message? Wouldn't I first need to encrypt it in a way that only he can decrypt it as the holder of the secret token? Wouldn't I also need access to that secret token to do the encryption? Sorry, I'm pretty new to GPG.

But isn't it possible for an attacker to grab another user's key and sign the message with that to claim to be that user?

It's a typical Rails app. I just made that script for testing purposes.

Thanks for your response. This seems like a good solution. Though I've posted an edit with a new idea involving just plain old GPG concepts. Would you mind taking a look and seeing if it's valid?

Oops. Sorry. Then I hope to just get advice on the whole flow from a security standpoint.
