Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) is a computer program that provides cryptographic privacy and authentication. PGP is often used for signing, encrypting and decrypting e-mails or files to increase the security of e-mail communications and file transfer. It was created by Philip Zimmermann in 1991.
PGP and other similar products follow the OpenPGP standard (RFC 4880) for encrypting and decrypting data.
PGP encryption uses a serial combination of hashing, data compression, symmetric-key cryptography, and, finally, public-key cryptography; each step uses one of several supported algorithms. Each public key is bound to a user name and/or an e-mail address. The first version of this system was generally known as a web of trust to contrast with the X.509 system which uses a hierarchical approach based on certificate authority and which was added to PGP implementations later. Current versions of PGP encryption include both options through an automated key management server.
ezPGP is a set of OpenPGP compliance software which provides very easy-to-use tools and interface. It contains:
- A set of API for Microsoft .Net Framework applications
- A set of Win32 API
- A windows GUI
- A set of PGP Commands which can run on 32/64 bits windows and Linux platform
- The ezPGP CryptoServer is the unique web-based PGP Encryption software in the world. It provides the most convenient usage to secure data without installing any PGP encryption software on the PC.
