Here’s a transcript of a chat room with a really, really bad hacker trying to mess with somebody.

PGP

October 12th, 2003 | 1 Comment | Posted in security

I was watching one of my favorite tech-dork shows today (The Screensavers), and they were talking about PGP…Pretty Good Privacy. You can use PGP to encrypt/decrypt messages and digitially sign your emails so that people know that messages really came from you. I’m finding it a little complicated to get all straight…but I’ll forge ahead and it should all become clear soon.

If you are going to use PGP, you’ll need a public and private key. The public key is what you give to your friends for them to use to encrypt a message for you. You then use your private key to decrypt that message.

You can grab PGP from here.

My public key is posted below:
