Secure Correspondence via PGP

One of the adages that we at CRUFFLER.COM have come to live with is that "just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that they're not out to get you."  In another, milder, sense just because you send an email, and it is received by your desired recipient(s) doesn't mean that the message hasn't been intercepted by a third party.  Most of the time this is harmless.  However, there are times when such an interception can be catastrophic (such as when you're covertly purchasing that Brazilian contract Mauser that you can't live without!).  It is important, therefore, to protect your privacy.

PGP® or Pretty Good Privacy® is a powerful, and easy to use cryptographic product family that enables people to securely exchange messages, and to secure files, disk volumes and network connections with both privacy and strong authentication.

Privacy means that only the intended recipient of a message can read it. By providing the ability to encrypt messages, PGP provides protection against anyone eavesdropping on the network. Even if the information is intercepted, it is completely unreadable to the snooper. Authentication identifies the origin of the information, certainty that it is authentic, and that it has not been altered.  Authentication also provides an extremely valuable tool in network security: verification of the identity of an individual.  In addition to secure messaging, PGP also provides secure data storage, enabling you to encrypt files stored on your computer.  Version 6.5.2 also includes PGPnet - a powerful VPN client which enables secure peer-to-peer IP-based network connections - and Self-Decrypting Archives (SDAs) which allow you to exchange information securely even with those who do not have PGP.

You can download the freeware version of PGP Version 6.5.2 from the MIT Distribution Center for PGP.

Once you've downloaded and installed PGP, you will need to download our "Public Key (the meaning of this term will become evident once you browse through the PGP documentation)".  You can download our public key by clicking here.

Once you've downloaded our public key and imported it into your keyring, you're all set to send us encrypted mail that will only be read by you and CRUFFLER.COM.  Don't forget to send us your public key in an unencoded message first, or else we won't be able to decode your messages!!
