PGP & GPG: Email for the Practical Paranoid

Buy
"...The World's first user-friendly book on email privacy...unless you're a cryptographer, or never use email, you should read this book." —Len Sassaman, CodeCon Founder

"Today, most email is sent like a postcard. We all should want to put our mail back into secure envelopes again. PGP and GPG are two of the leading tools to make that happen." —Brad Templeton, Chairman of the Board, Electronic Frontier Foundation

Governments worldwide, major manufacturers, medical facilities, and many of the smartest computer experts around trust their secure communications to PGP (Pretty Good Privacy). But, while PGP works amazingly when all is in order, it isn’t always easy to configure and can be very tricky to troubleshoot. And email security is hardly the sort of thing you want to leave to chance.

PGP & GPG: Email for the Practical Paranoid is for moderately skilled geeks who are unfamiliar with public-key cryptography but who want to protect their communications on the cheap. Author Michael Lucas offers this easy-to-read, informal tutorial on PGP, so you can dive in right away.

Inside, you’ll learn:
• How to integrate OpenPGP with the most common email clients (like Outlook and Thunderbird)
• How to use the tricky command-line versions of these programs
• How to join and use the Web of Trust

If you're not using PGP yet, this book supplies the confidence you need to get started. And if you are, it will show you how to use these tools more easily and effectively.
