Description: GnuPG (GNU Privacy Guard) is a GNU utility for encrypting
data and creating digital signatures. GnuPG has advanced key
           : management capabilities and is compliant with the proposed
OpenPGP Internet standard described in RFC2440. Since GnuPG doesn't
           : use any patented algorithm, it is not compatible with any
version of PGP2 (PGP2.x uses only IDEA for symmetric-key encryption,
           : which is patented worldwide).
