What is Open PGP?


Open PGP is an encryption standard. It uses asymmetric (public key) cryptography and addresses issues around authentication of data and non-repudiation through the ability to "sign" files via embedded digital signatures. 

These features deliver a high level of data protection to organizations, making PGP a popular encryption method.
