Secure Encryption with GPG

We do secure encryption of files with a tool called Gnu Privacy Guard (GPG).

To learn about GPG:

Try secure encryption now

To try this, you can save our sample file that is encrypted with GPG.

On most web browsers, you can right-click this link: sample.gpg

The sample file is encrypted with GPG using the password: secret

To decrypt the file on a Unix or MacOS command line:

  gpg -d sample.txt.gpg > sample.txt

For technical people, the command we use to encrypt the file is:

  gpg -c
  --cipher-algo aes256
  --digest-algo sha256 
  --cert-digest-algo sha256
  --compress-algo uncompressed
