Download Gpg4win 4 - Enables users to securely transport emails and files with the help of encryption and digital signatures
Gpg4win enables users to securely transport emails and files with the help of encryption and digital signatures. Encryption protects the contents against an unwanted party reading it. Digital signatures make sure that it was not modified and comes from a specific sender. Gpg4win supports both relevant cryptography standards, OpenPGP and S/MIME (X.509), and is the official GnuPG distribution for Windows. It is maintained by the developers of GnuPG.
All you have to do is specify a name, email address, comment, as well as configure advanced settings when it comes to the key material (RSA or DSA) and certificate usage (e.g. signing, encryption, validity, authentication). Once you enter a password phrase and write text to be used as inter-character timing, you can create the certificate.
So, you can send the certificate via email, upload it to a directory service or create a backup, as well as view lists of your personal, trusted and other certificates, look them up on a server and use a search function when dealing with large amounts of data. Other features of Gpg4win let you create and verify checksum files, import Certificate Revocation Lists, perform a self-test, as well as configure toolbars and shortcuts.
The application runs on a moderate quantity of CPU and system memory, has a good response time and includes user documentation. No error dialogs have been shown in our tests and the program did not hang or crash. All in all, Gpg4win supplies users with the necessary means to create, import and attach certificates to emails.
