gnupg - Man Page

The GNU Privacy Guard suite of programs


GnuPG is a set of programs for public key encryption and digital signatures.  The program most users will want to use is the OpenPGP command line tool, named gpg.  gpgvis a stripped down version of gpg with no encryption functionality, used only to verify signatures against a trusted keyring.  gpgsm is the X.509/CMS (for S/MIME) counterpart of gpg. gpg-agent is a passphrase and private key daemon which may also emulate the ssh-agent.
