Secure your e-mail with OpenPGP
Source: No Starch Press
Governments, major manufacturers, and medical facilities around the world trust their secure communications to PGP (Pretty Good Privacy). While PGP works impressively when all is in order, it isn't always easy to configure and can be very tricky to troubleshoot -- and e-mail security is hardly the sort of thing you want to leave to chance. PGP & GPG: Email for the Practical Paranoid offers solutions for moderately skilled geeks who are unfamiliar with public-key cryptography but who want to protect their communications on the cheap. In this chapter download, learn how to use public keys, private keys, and digital signatures to create your chosen level of e-mail privacy in OpenPGP.
