The GNU Privacy Guard

https://www.gnupg.org/
Complete implementation of the OpenPGP Internet standard

GnuPG is a complete implementation of the OpenPGP standard. It is used to encrypt and sign data and communication. It features powerful key management and the ability to access public key servers.

This package, also known as GPG, is a command line tool with features for easy integration with other applications. A wealth of frontend applications and libraries are available.

Documentation

Full documentation available at: https://www.gnupg.org/documentation/index.html

Notes

Even if you have nothing to hide, using encryption helps protect the privacy of people you communicate with, and makes life difficult for bulk surveillance systems. If you do have something important to hide, you are in good company; GnuPG is one of the tools that Edward Snowden used to uncover the secrets of the NSA.

See also the Email Self-Defense site to learn how and why you should use GnuPG for your electronic communication.
