Just created a GPG key pair and my client needs the below details. I dont see where to get these any ideas?

Encryption Algorithm (Example: AES256, AES192, AES128)
Signing Algorithm (Example: SHA512, SHA256)

    When you write "my client," which client are you referring to?

    Hi bhacker,

    to show the algorithm preferences of your key do the following:

    1. Activate the expert settings
    2. Open GPG Keychain and select your key.
    3. In the menu bar select "Key" -> "Algorithm Preferences…"

    Be careful to not modify these values or your key could stop to work!
    Do not forget to disable the expert settings when you are done.

    Regards, Mento
