You know, there's also a GNU Privacy Guard (GPG) that is designed to be a
complete replacement for PGP. The only trouble is that, IIRC, it doesn't
support RSA or other non-free crypto algorithms. Anybody else know for sure?
The website is: http://www.d.shuttle.de/isil/gnupg/
As I understand it from RFC2440, GPG will not create RSA keys but will
support them in verification and decryption/encryption. Is this true,
