    That's good to know. Some time ago Network Associates announced they wouldn't update pgp anymore. Guess they changed their mind... Phil Zimmerman is still hanging in there too.

    actually it looks like NAI finally sold pgp.. PGP corp, is actually claiming a release of pgp 8.0 for Q4 2002... so between now and xmas there will be a new version..

    but they also have the current versions there and even have the corporate versions... and i didn't know that there was a pgp for pocket pc.. i'm all over that one... now i really can use that for my mobile password list for the offices i manage...

    Phil Zimmerman whas very positive about PGP.
    I remember talking to him during www.hal2001.org
    But after 9/11 he started having doubts about PGP when it came out that terrorists had been using it to send encrypted mail.
    The new CTO is a good replacement since Jon Callas has worked for PGP in the past and is a classic Apple engineer.

    Curious about this, as I have yet to see any confirmation that the terrorists were using PGP to set up the 9/11 attacks. My understanding is that they used low tech techniques - i.e. sending a person to talk with someone else, which is impossible to detect unless you suspect the meeting was taking place.
