    Talking Just wondering...

    Hello, hello, hello!

    I was just wondering if there was anyone out there who could point me in the direction of a good encryption program. I know about PGP but don't really like it (am I weird for this??). Are there any other freeware progs. with strong encryption?

    Anywayz, thanks for viewing even if you can't help out.

    Cheers,
    VB

    they have a bunch of little proggies up there. may not be strong enough, but worth a test drive.
    i\'m starting to think that i\'m bound to always be the first guy on the second page of the thread.

    if he is using PGP than he is on windows, now if he had said GnuPGP then that would be different. So im assuming he is on windows, and as for windows goes, PGP is basically all you need, by running windows you are pretty much screwed anyways.

    The best encryption program is the one that works with a "one time pad" this is a russian method that can't be encrypted without the pad. The pad is a series of numbers that you use ONE time to encrypt and decrypt the message. Because you use the pad once no one can decrypt the message. (ask the NSA) The "one time pad" method is a russian method that's been used with success.

    umm... cleanbash... methinks you need a history lesson, one time pads were not invented by the russian government! they are but one recent example of a group of people using one time pads.... however one time pads are pretty much useless for large messages/documents... why.... take a look here

    Hello. I think a good way to begin with this is to inform yourself of all available choices, so you can decide for yourself what suits your needs best.

    Have a look at this link HERE!

    This will explain to you the different cryptography styles and information on what they are.

    Good luck.

    Cheers.
