PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) is currently the best and most popular data (including texts, e-mails, files, directories, partitions, and whole disk) signing, encrypting, and decrypting program, developed by Phil Zimmermann in 1991. Its source code is open, and it has withstood the challenges from thousands of top hackers around the world. It turns out that PGP is still the most secure encryption software in the world for now (until the popularity of quantum computers, I think). Without a password, no one can decrypt the data encrypted with it!

In fact, the well-known PGP Desktop (full name: Pretty Good Privacy Desktop) did not go away, but was acquired by Symantec Corporation and became one of their family products Symantec Encryption Desktop – A flexible, multi-level local file encryption, protection tool along with secure files erasing, virtual disks, encrypted disks, and other practical utilities. That’s why it’s so familiar when you’re running Symantec Encryption Desktop. In other words, it is PGP Desktop’s successor, i.e., they are the same software.

The following is the name changes of the original PGP Desktop Products:

Legacy PGP Product Name Symantec Product Name
PGP Desktop Symantec Encryption Desktop
PGP Whole Disk Encryption Symantec Drive Encryption
PGP Desktop Email Symantec Desktop Email Encryption
PGP NetShare Symantec File Share Encryption
PGP Desktop Storage Symantec Encryption Desktop Storage
PGP Desktop Professional Symantec Encryption Desktop Professional

// About Public Key, Private Key, Private Key Password //

Public key, Private key and Private Key Password are all important. Because whichever is missing will affect the normal operation of some function. The relevant functions are described as follows:

Function Required Key
Encryption As long as you have a public key, you can do this. A private key cannot do this, so you don’t need a private key.
Decryption Only having a public key cannot complete this function. You must have both public key and private key in hand, and enter the private key password to complete this function.
Signature You don’t need a public key, just a private key (and enter the private key password) to do this.
Signature Verification You only need the public key or private key. And if you are using a private key, you even do not need to enter the private key password.

Simply put, be sure to save your public, private, and private key passwords at the same time.
