Some data is too sensitive to send over the internet without encryption, so easy to use and widely available encryption is important. Digital Red uses PGP encryption, and the public key is available to download from PGP keyservers, or below.
If you use GnuPG for Windows, just copy the contents of this box to your clipboard, open GPA (‘GNU Privacy Assistant’) on your PC, and press CTRL+V to paste the key onto your keyring.

How to start using PGP
If you don’t already have a copy of PGP, you can download GnuPG for Windows from http://gpg4win.org/download.html free of charge. You’ll need to create a private key of your own (which you should never give to anyone: only ever share your public key!), but full instructions are provided.
I recommend that you download the “Gpg4win Light” version – it has everything you need and just leaves out the command line parts that you’d likely never need.
Test your PGP installation
If you’d like to check to see if you’ve got PGP set up correctly, why not send me an encrypted message to me once you’ve got yourself set up to test everything out?
