[][src]Struct sequoia_openpgp::cert::SubkeyRevocationBuilder

pub struct SubkeyRevocationBuilder { /* fields omitted */ }

A Subkey revocation builder.

Note: this function has three degrees of freedom: the Cert, the key used to generate the revocation, and the subkey.

Normally, the key used to generate the revocation is the Cert's primary key, and the subkey is a subkey that is bound to the Cert. However, this is not required.

If Alice has marked Robert's key (R) as a designated revoker for her key (A), then R can revoke A or parts of A. In this case, the Cert is A, the key used to generate the revocation comes from R, and the User ID is bound to A.

But, the component doesn't technically need to be bound to the Cert. For instance, it is possible for R to revoke the User ID "bob@example.org" in the context of A, even if "bob@example.org" is not bound to A.


use sequoia_openpgp::policy::StandardPolicy;

let p = &StandardPolicy::new();

// Generate a Cert, and create a keypair from the primary key.
let (cert, _) = CertBuilder::new()
let mut keypair = cert.primary_key().key().clone()
let subkey = cert.keys().subkeys().nth(0).unwrap();

// Generate the revocation for the first and only Subkey.
let revocation =
            b"Smells funny.").unwrap()
        .build(&mut keypair, &cert, subkey.key(), None)?;
assert_eq!(revocation.typ(), SignatureType::SubkeyRevocation);

// Now merge the revocation signature into the Cert.
let cert = cert.merge_packets(vec![revocation.clone().into()])?;

// Check that it is revoked.
let subkey = cert.keys().subkeys().nth(0).unwrap();
if let RevocationStatus::Revoked(revocations) = subkey.revoked(p, None) {
    assert_eq!(revocations.len(), 1);
    assert_eq!(*revocations[0], revocation);
} else {
    panic!("Subkey is not revoked.");
