S-expressions are used by the public key functions to pass complex data structures around. These LISP like objects are used by some cryptographic protocols (cf. RFC-2692) and Libgcrypt provides functions to parse and construct them. For detailed information, see Ron Rivest, code and description of S-expressions, http://theory.lcs.mit.edu/~rivest/sexp.html.
