PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) is a public key encryption program originally written by Phil Zimmermann in 1991. Later PGP versions have been developed and distributed by MIT, ViaCrypt, PGP Inc., and now Network Associates Inc. (NAI). PGP is the de-facto standard for email encryption today, with millions of users worldwide.
The RAZip bitstream format was designed to provide a faster random access to compressed data than what is currently possible using the GZIP format. Its major features include fast random access to compressed data, freedom from patents, single-pass coding/decoding using a bounded amount of intermediate storage, the ability to choose from one of many algorithms for compression, encryption, or error correction, and comprehensive support for Unix file metadata, Macintosh file metadata, and arbitrary file metadata.
Keyring for PalmOS lets you securely store secret keys and confidential information on a PalmOS handheld computer. This information might include computer account passwords, credit card numbers, GnuPG or PGP passphrases, SKey one-time-pads, or phone banking keywords. Records are encrypted using the well-trusted DES3 algorithm on a master password. When you need to set a password, Keyring can generate a random password of specified length, optionally including letters, numbers, or symbols.
KCrypto is a KDE2 file encryptor. It uses the Rijndael public domain C++ class implementation, and is capable of encrypting and decrypting every kind of file (text and binary) in CBC mode with a 32-byte key (256 bits) very quickly. Its purpose is to provide a more secure alternative to passworded .zip files or giving the user the chance to store or send a file via the Internet in reasonable security.
RFC 2015 defines a proposed Internet standard for sending PGP-encrypted email. This PGP/MIME has been incorporated into several MUAs such as Mutt and (with the AEGYPTEN project) KMail. However, a lot of email clients still don't support it. pgp-mime-handler can decrypt/verify such messages via a pipe, so it can be used as an email filter in many programs or scripts.
pyOpenSSL is a Python wrapper for a subset of OpenSSL's functionality, featuring an advanced error management system, connection objects that wrap socket methods, and flexible context objects. Also included is a rudimentary crypto module that can be used to create and verify certificates (X509 objects).
