OpenPGP

(OPENPretty Good Privacy) A data encryption protocol as defined by IETF RFC 2440. It is the open version of PGP and uses a "web of trust" rather than official, centralized certificate authorities (CAs). OpenPGP lets anyone sign anyone else's public key. For more information, visit www.openpgp.org. See PGP and web of trust.
