When prompted to enter your PGP key passphrase, after typing the passphrase, authentication fails and you are asked to Re-enter the passphrase of your private key:
If you select to Show Keystrokes when typing your passphrase, you notice that additional characters are being added to your passphrase.
This occurs due to an incompatibility with PGP Desktop and the Strike Force Technologies GuardedID keyboard driver (gidv2.sys). The GuardedID keyboard driver is a key logger protection software which adds the additional characters to the PGP passphrase prompt.
This issue is resolved by uninstalling the GuardedID software from the system and then rebooting the computer.
After removing the additional keyboard driver from GuardedID, you can successfully authenticate your passphrase when prompted.
