SOP for Java

status-badge Spec Revision: 10 Coverage Status REUSE status

The Stateless OpenPGP Protocol specification defines a generic stateless CLI for dealing with OpenPGP messages. Its goal is to provide a minimal, yet powerful API for the most common OpenPGP related operations.

Packaging status Maven Central


The repository contains the following modules:

  • sop-java defines a set of Java interfaces describing the Stateless OpenPGP Protocol.
  • sop-java-picocli contains a wrapper application that transforms the sop-java API into a command line application compatible with the SOP-CLI specification.
  • external-sop contains an API implementation that can be used to forward API calls to a SOP executable, allowing to delegate the implementation logic to an arbitrary SOP CLI implementation.
