PGP

PGP (short for: Pretty Good Privacy) is a data encryption programme. The application uses a public key cryptography infrastructure, including one public and one private key. The message for an addressee is encrypted via public key and can only be deciphered via the private key. With each message, PGP sends an authentication to verify the originator’s identity. Some upgrades of the programme can also protect data against unauthorised access, as well as secure voice over IP and chats.
