My final goal is to create a SFTP server coupled with a PGP authentication as described here: SFTP+PGP.

Actually I succeeded to create a sftp_user user who can connect to his own directory on my server via SFTP with his username and password. (I followed this great procedure Setting up SFTP).

Now, I want to allow him to connect with a key file generated by PGP without using a password.

I've already generated a PGP key but i can't assign it to my user sftp_user.

So what is the procedure for achieve this?

I can only connect in SSH for setting up the environment.
