PGP 8.0 is the latest implementation of the security and encryption technology called “Pretty Good Privacy.” It enables users to send secure messages via e-mail and store files securely on their hard disks, and also offers network managers and system administrators extensive capabilities to encrypt and authenticate data as well.
PGP Corp. makes a number of different PGP products, including PGP Enterprise, Desktop, Personal, and more — some products will not be available on the Mac until 2003.
Changes in PGP 8.0 also include a new, enhanced user interface, a plug-in for Apple’s Mail.app software that supports PGP/MIME (RFC 3156), integration with Microsoft Entourage, support for the Dock and Services, expanded Unicode support, PGP Disk format compatibility between Mac OS X and Windows, and the ability to encrypt in PGP Disk using Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).
