Random Wikipedia of the Day (RWotD): Pretty Good Privacy

Pretty Good Post ^_^

Couldn't resist, I am a card carrying wise acre after all!

Link to PGP site

For those not familiar with this, it is a very useful way to encrypt email & etc, basically you provide people or the public, with your public key.

Doesn't matter if people trying to crack it know that, and people use your public key to encrypt messages they want to send to you, then you use your private key, which you do need to keep private like a password, to decode it.

I will probably play around with this when I get Android phone, I am used to security that my Blackberry provides, and want something secure to replace that, when I switch to Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
