With the revelations that not only are various governments around the world are indiscriminately collecting all the data they can on people but 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, nothing is further from the truth. Gpg4win has a message encryption application called GPA (GNU Privacy Assistant) which is amazingly easy to use and also gives you file encryption and decryption capabilites directly in Windows Explorer.
This book takes you step-by-step through how to set up and use the GPA message encryption application and the file encryption/decryption feature installed in Windows Explorer that come in the free Gpg4win suite of software. You’ll learn how to create your own encryption key, how to obtain other’s public keys so you can send encrypted messages to them and you’ll learn how to encrypt and decrypt messages and files.
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 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, within a couple of hours you’ll be more than capable of encrypting and decrypting messages and files and will be protecting your data from those prying eyes and let’s face it, who doesn’t need a bit of privacy sometimes?
