We do not provide a key, so it is signed just whatever key you assign. I you are talking about the armored (text readable) data, it will say what engine was used. This is customary, you will see it with OpenGPG, GnuGPG, PGP and other software, and is not part of the signature. To digitally sign you need a private key. Signatures are not readable by humans since they are part of the encryption, so can you please post how you have detected this? That would help us solve this issue.

Edit: Mario, you can remove the Version without effecting the outcome, so if you like, use Text replacement activity to replace it with blank. I tested it and it works the same.

Thank you for choosing AutoMate
