gnupg-1.4.13-1: Gnu privacy guard - A Free PGP replacement
 GnuPG is GNU's tool for secure communication and data
 storage. It can be used to encrypt data and to create digital
 signatures. It includes an advanced key management facility and is
 compliant with the proposed OpenPGP Internet standard as described in
 GnuPG does not use use any patented algorithms so it cannot be
 compatible with PGP2 because it uses IDEA (which is patented
 worldwide) and RSA. RSA's patent expired on the 20th September 2000,
 and it is now included in GnuPG.
 For IDEA support, see the "gnupg-idea" package.
