OpenPGP does not define any algorithm for this procedure and GPG hasn't implemented such a thing yet.

It could be done external but not without lots of work.

Split Key [ Reply ]

Is it possible to split a key in n other key that must be combined to use the main key?
For example suppose that we want sign an e-mail as ufficial act of my team.
For the importance of the act it is necessary that 2 persons the "director" and the "vice-director" sign jointly (but with the team key! and not individually), so the team's key might be splitted into 2 other keys that combined allow the use of the team's key.
Someone knows if it is just possible or if this feature is scheduled for next releases?
