Where do I get PGP?

You can download source for PGP 5 for Unix or PGP 6 for Windows from

 
http://www.pgpi.com/


If you're on Linux, you can get .deb's and .rpm's etc. I used the following query to search for them:

http://www.altavista.com/cgi-bin/query?
pg=q&kl=XX&stype=stext&q=%2Bpgp+%2B
%28deb+rpm%29


I found an RPM of PGP 5 at:

ftp://ftp.replay.com/pub/replay/pub/linux/

redhat/i386/pgp-5.0i-7.i386.rpm

(doesn't work half the time!)

...and a DEB at:

http://ftp.uevora.pt/debian-non-US/potato/
binary-i386/pgp5i_5.0-3.deb



How do I run PGP?

I can do no better than to point you to the Linux PGP HOWTO:

In order to be a part of the key-signing party, you just need to have
generated your public and secret keys and got the relevant information
(detailed under) to me.
