My question, why use pgp? What was his name zimmerman or something
inventor of pgp stated that he does not use his own product and signing
certain such messages could even incriminate one-self in some
hypothetical illegal scenario.
Well I didn't sign xyz message, at least I could plea the fifth and deny
it even if I did send it. With pgp you have less options.
Personally, I think encryption/verification signatures work well for
software to see if it is authentic for obvious reasons. But yet no
firefox addons are signed or can be verified! As for email, I think
it's a waste of time.
