GNUPG(7)                       GNU Privacy Guard                      GNUPG(7)



NAME
       GnuPG - The GNU Privacy Guard suite of programs

DESCRIPTION
       GnuPG is a set of programs for public key encryption and digital signa-
       tures.  The program most users will want to use is the OpenPGP  command
       line  tool,  named gpg.  gpgv is a stripped down version of gpg with no
       encryption functionality, used only  to  verify  signatures  against  a
       trusted keyring.  There is also a tool called gpgsplit to split OpenPGP
       messages or keyrings into their component packets.  This is mainly use-
       ful for seeing how OpenPGP messages are put together.
