Total self-promotional tangent, but fwiw, I wrote a tool a while ago to
allow people to share secrets using their (presumed to be well-known)
ssh keys:


That is, I completely outsourced the problem of key authenticity to the
user (or, preferably, your already trusted (LDAP) infrastructure),
allowing users to be able to encrypt/decrypt data with a little bit more

This worked well enough for at least one fairly large engineering
organization.  Not the same use-cases as PGP by far, but I figured it's
at least somewhat related. ;-)
