Re: Email signing and encryption

Gudena,

There are a wide number of groups that use PGP/GPG for just this
purposes--in the global CSIRT community (www.first.org), it is
the "defacto" secure communications method.

The CERT Program has been utilizing this method for secure
communications since the very early releases of PGP (even back
to PEM [privacy enhanced mail]) to the GPG versions :)

Many of the CSIRT community now have our business cards printed
with our fingerprints right on the card to aid in extending our
web of trust in that community.

Is anyone using GnuPG (Gnu Privacy Guard) or PGP for digital signing and
email encryption purposes? If not are there any other solutions that are
being used? I would like to know your experience/ suggestions .

Thanks.
