The story’s a very good introduction to GPG. One of the best stories on the subject that I know and that I could recommend to someone who wants to get a quick overview of GPG. (Hmm.., well, like you said yourself – maybe it is really better that trolls like you don’t actively visit a good site like OS News..?) 2005-01-25 10:07 pm Anonymous The point is by reading it noone can tell wtf GPG actually is. 2005-01-25 10:21 pm Anonymous True.. the only thing I knew GPG from, before reading this article, were the great “Game Programming Gems” books. But I guess that’s not what they’re talking about there. =) 2005-01-26 8:51 am Anonymous —–BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE—– Hash: SHA1 You can even let CAcert sign your GnuPG key if you’ve got a valid CAcert certificate! —–BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE—– Version: GnuPG v1.2.5 (GNU/Linux) iD8DBQFB91npSTv4ppQVDnwRAnXyAKCjDrVCrnkxVeSkCN3svMQIjNSJvgCfZZQQ SCLr9K55627JdqyADVlInbk= =R1hc —–END PGP SIGNATURE—– 2005-01-26 11:22 am Anonymous I have always created my keys within the KDE tools, or with PGP in Windows. After migrating to Ubuntu I was unsure how to encrypt email from a Gnome based OS. Thanks Eugenia, for linking to this very helpful article.
