Is it possible to implement OpenGPG support into LibreOffice? There is a user case: user may have an access to certain file and anybody else may not. It is comfortable to use OpenGPG right in LibreOffice, is not it?

There's been some work on signing and certificates lately. It's possible that this idea could build on top of what's been done there.
Status -> NEW
This is an enhancement, so
Severity -> enhancement
Missing version, so I'll guess
Version -> 126.96.36.199
Support for signing using gpg keys has been added to LO 5.4 (Linux only so far).
Encryption using gpg is planned for 6.0.
If you need anyone to test functionality on Mac, please send me a heads up. I run macos 10.12.6 with GPGtools 2017.1b3 (gpgtools.org) so baseline support is available, and I'm about to update my LO install to 5.4, UK language pack.
Note that I'm not a developer but happy to contribute in the form of feedback, diagnostics, bad humour etc - I think PGP integration for doc signing as well as doc confidentiality is a good goal as it's a fully open and documented process, and ECDSA sign verification does not really work that well across national borders (that's a diplomatic problem, not a code issue :) ).
