Description

This book takes you step-by-step through how to set up and use the free Gpg4win encryption suite of software, including using GPA email message encryption application and the file encryption/decryption features.

You’ll learn how to create your own digital signature encryption key, how to obtain other people’s public keys so you can send encrypted messages to them and how to encrypt and decrypt messages and files.

With the revelations that not only are various governments around the world are indiscriminately collecting all the data they can on people but the employees of those agencies are unofficially accessing it for their own gain, more and more people are becoming interested in using encryption to protect their messages from unauthorised viewing.

The problem for most people is they don’t know where to start and think it’s going to be too hard.

With Gpg4win encryption software, nothing is further from the truth. Gpg4win has a message encryption application called GPA (GNU Privacy Assistant) which is easy to use and also gives you file encryption and decryption capabilities directly from Windows Explorer.

The book is aimed at both experienced and the not-so-experienced computer user. There’s a Quick Start Guide for those who don’t want the full hand holding and are eager to get encrypting and a fully illustrated step-by-step guide for those who want to know more about the main features of the application and want to take their time getting to know it.

No matter how experienced you are or aren’t, you’ll quickly be more than capable of encrypting and decrypting messages and files and will soon be protecting your data from those prying eyes and let’s face it, who doesn’t need a bit of privacy sometimes?

You can download the free software from the Gpg4win website
