What is the current consensus about which (if any) versions of PGP may have
backdoors inserted by NAI while it was their product?

If one wanted to encrypt data on a laptop but the enhanced cryptopack
for
Windows XP isn't strong enough, what products would you recommend?
Preferably low cost or free products?

Thanks, Gabe


Gabe,

Here's what I would recommend:

For encrypting folders or large amounts of files:
Paid - Bestcrypt 7+ (http://www.jetico.com/order.htm)
Free - PGPDisk (http://www.pgpi.org/products/pgpdisk/)
Free - FineCrypt (http://www.finecrypt.net/)

For encrypting files:
Free - FineCrypt (http://www.finecrypt.net/)
Free - Microsoft's EFS (Built in)
Free - PGP (version 6) www.pgpi.com
PAID - PGP (version 8) www.pgp.com

For higher security:
Crypt Card - http://www.gtgi.com/products_cryptcard.php

For normal access control:
IBM SmartCard Security Toolkit (both an encryption/decryption package
and access control requiring a smart card and pin to boot the system)
