Notes: This book describes how to use PGP to encrypt files and email and how to "sign" your email with an unforgeable digital signature, proving to recipients that your messages were sent by you (and weren't modified during transmission). It also contains a fasinating, behind-the-scenes look at the development of Phil Zimmermann's controversial program, and the issues surrounding privacy, the export of encryption programs, and cryptography patents.
