Actually, they are very closely related. PGPnet is an IPsec implementation that allows for the use of PGP authentication/encryption by both parties. It is part of the PGP suite. (Remember that PGP is not just the OpenPGP program; it is also PGPdisk, PGPnet, and the related plugins.) One *should* associate the security that comes with PGP together with PGPnet; PGPnet is only as secure as PGP itself. - --Len. __ L.
