An overview of GPG

Wednesday, 26 January 2005, 7:58 AM EST

GPG stands for Gnu Privacy Guard. It is a program from the FSF which allows you to encrypt and verify signed files created by others all without a shared secret which would allow others to impersonate you or get access to your encrypted files.

The purpose of encryption is to make something readable only to a select individual or group. The simplest ways of doing this are "codes" which basically mean that parts (possibly all of it in total) are transposed with other unique items.
