gpg4usb is an easy to use, small portable editor with the possibility to encrypt and decrypt any text-message or -file you want. For encryption it acts as a gpg-frontend (http://gnupg.org/). Its intend is to be used from an usb-stick, running on Windows(TM) and Linux. Providing a mac-binary is on our TODO-list.
Our aim is, to give anyone the possibility to send and receive secure encrypted messages anywhere - on any computer out there, no matter if Microsoft Windows(TM) or Linux is running on it. Therefore it's usage should be self-describing, and the user-interface is kept as simple as possible.
Of course gpg4usb is open source, as are included libs and binaries.
- Unzip gpg4usb.zip on your usb-stick.
- start programm with start_windows.exe or start_linux (depending on your os)
- import your private key and some public keys
- enjoy portable encryption ;-)
