Gnu Privacy Guard

Gnu Privacy Guard


GnuPrivacyGuard (GPG) brings GnuPG, the most trusted name in encryption, to Android. Easily encrypt, decrypt, sign and verify files of any kind, just by sharing them to GPG. This app aims to provide a complete, integrated crypto toolkit integrated into the Android experience. GPG provides solid encryption for files private, and for verifying that files are who you think they are. It includes optimizations to make it operate many times faster than other encryption packages.

GPG provides an integrated experience, so clicking on OpenPGP files "just works". You can also share files to GPG to decrypt, encrypt, sign, or verify them. GPG will respond when you click on a OpenPGP fingerprint URL (one that starts with openpgp4fpr:). GPG also gives you complete command line access to the entire GnuPG suite of encryption software. We are working on Android integration for all of GnuPG's crypto services, including OpenPGP, symmetric encryption, and more.

***Setup***
Before using GPG, be sure to launch the app and let it finish its installation process. Once it has completed, then you're ready to use it!

If you want to use the command line, the easiest way to get started with GPG is to install Android Terminal Emulator. GPG will automatically configure Android Terminal Emulator as long as you have the "Allow PATH extensions" settings enabled. Get the Android Terminal Emulator at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jackpal.androidterm

CyanogenMod Privacy Guard must be disabled for this app to work!

***Features***
★ TRUSTED SECURITY: GnuPG already seamlessly integrates into Mac OSX (GPGtools), Windows (gpg4win), GNU/Linux, Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora.
★ OPEN STANDARD COMPLIANT: Full OpenPGP implementation following RFC2440 and RFC4880
★ PUBLIC KEY ENCRYPTION: Full interoperable replacement of the proprietary Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) standard.
★ BROAD ALGORITHM LANDSCAPE: Supports 3DES, AES, Blowfish, CAST5, DSA, ElGamal, MD5, RSA, RIPDE-MD-160, SHA-1, TIGER, and Twofish.
★ CONFIRMED SECURITY: Italian Police, the FBI, and British police have been unable to crack its security and have resorted to demanding private keys. It’s been likened as “the closest you’re likely to get to military-grade encryption” by cryptographer Bruce Schneier.
★ KEYSERVER SUPPORT: Integrated support for HKP keyservers (ipv4.pool.sks-keyservers.net).
★ WE SPEAK YOUR LANGUAGE: GPG is available for friends who speak: Arabic (العربية), English, French (Français), German (Deutsch), Norwegian (Norsk), Portuguese (Português), Spanish (Español).

Public keys disappear Imported public keys may vanish for no reason (and sometimes reapear later). Far from usable right now.

Couldn't import private keys Several times I tried importing my secring.gpg file to import two or three of my existing private keys and it wouldn't show them in the private keys tab, though it would show up in the public key tabs. Without being able to import private keys, this application serves no purpose for me.

The app is great and works well, but I'd love to see symmetric encryption/decryption as an option.

Pretty sneaky for a "We ant security for the world app". A security app should never do anything with out you knowing exactly what it is doing. Went to look up a phone number and I noticed a bunch of contacts that I did not create. looking further I then noticed that it create an account on my device. I can not trust an app when it does things behind my back.
