This document describes how to sign and encrypt mail and other data. It first tells a little bit about the basics of cryptography and then gives an overview of GnuPG functionality and its trust model. It also deals with integration into mail programs (mutt + Gnus) and with compatibility issues for old PGP2 keys.
