OpenPGP

Introduction

The email service in Home Digital Hub comes with its own Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) based encryption software, allowing easy encryption of data like emails WITHOUT needing the exchange of a encryption keys between the sender and receiver.

PGP has a colourful history and was even considered by the US government as a munition once. Today it remains a highly effective security tool.
