Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) or its open-source implementation, OpenPGP, is the gold standard of encryption online, and when used properly, has the potential to thwart even the likes of the NSA. Encryption solutions like BitLocker and DiskCryptor don’t secure email messages or files in the cloud. OpenPGP's industrial-strength encryption can ensure secure delivery of files and messages, as well as provide verification of who created or sent the message using a process called digital signing. Using OpenPGP for communication requires participation by both the sender and recipient.

The short journey of a few hours that led me to its password were extremely interesting and this article describes the process as well as some of the new techniques learnt along the way.
