While discussing with customers, it is needed a way to share/backup securely
OpenOffice files (for example for the privacy act issue in italy).
It would be useful to integrate GPG/PGP encryption/signing into OpenOffice
files, for example in the "save as" dialog.

IMHO can be implemented as a plugin or a file filter, for example "sdt" stands
for "secure odt", and is as easy as ecrypting/signing the zip file itself. I bet
this wouldn't be an OpenOasis standard, but would implement an opensource
solution. More, gpg/pgp is a "peer2peer" approach, rather than the hierarchical
x.509, so that also small business/home users can share securely their files
without the need for a certification authority.

Thanks a lot.
