GnuPG 2.1.23

GnuPG (the GNU Privacy Guard or GPG) is GNU's tool for secure communication and data storage. It can be used to encrypt data and to create digital signatures. It includes an advanced key management facility and is compliant with the proposed OpenPGP Internet standard as described in RFC2440. As such, it is meant to be compatible with PGP from NAI, Inc. Because it does not use any patented algorithms, it can be used without any restrictions.

Recent Releases

2.1.2310 Aug 2017 11:05 minor feature: Gpg: "gpg" is now installed as "gpg" and not anymore as "gpg2". If needed, the new configure option --enable-gpg-is-gpg2 can be. Used to revert this. Gpg: Options --auto-key-retrieve and --auto-key-locate "local,wkd". Are now used by default. Note: this enables keyserver and Web Key Directory operators to notice when a signature from a locally. Non-available key is being verified for the first time or when You intend to encrypt to a mail address without having the key Locally. This new behaviour will eventually make key discovery Much easier and mostly automatic. Disable this by adding no-auto-key-retrieve. Auto-key-locate local to your gpg.conf.
