How to use GPG on Windows : GnuPT

Many of us are wary of the world that is watching onto us what we are doing. May it be the big brother, google, hackers or even bystanders. We all need some sort of privacy while communicating. Why not use the war proven widely used AES encryption standard. You may say we need to get some tools since no one can sit around to write an AES encryption algo. Also you might say its weak for AES-256.

Well Open source and make our lives easier.
Gnu PG is a high security implementation of PGP which uses AES-2048 public key based algorithm.
Well that can take an attacker a long time to decipher.

This is a proven piece of software, however windows support is not directly available.
So initially WinPT was written and then the open sourced to GnuPT.

This piece of software is easy to install, create the private keys and import others public key.
The only thing to be shared between the users is each other public keys.
Here is the direct link to download: http://downloads.gnupt.de/gnupt.zip
