I know from people that they use GnuPG 1.4 (Windows) for portability on
a USB stick and therefore it could be run in a native Windows 10 
while also running a Tor hidden service in the sandbox, to communicate
encrypted, without relying on third party client/server models via VPS 
major email providers.

Is it possible to do that with the latest gpg4win?
