    Anyone ever heard of it? Is it any good? Is it better than PGP?

    Thanks. How does it stack up to PGP?

    Two different programs. PGP is much more comprehensive. PGP can be "plugged"
    into an email program for instance.
    The only problem with PGP is talking others into using it. It has a learning curve.
    I wouldn't install PGPnet. If I remember correctly, there was a problem involved. (cobwebs :) )

    Kremlin is handy for local encryption, sending a self decrypting attachment, secure deletions, etc.

    PGP is free, Kremlin is shareware.

    I've used Kremlin and it's okay. Some crypto people on the newsgroups question certain methods in implementation. I would strongly urge you over to take a look at AxCrypt:
    http://axcrypt.sourceforge.net/
    It is OPEN SOURCE and free!

    I only want to encrypt files on my computer. I tried AxCrypt but it keep freezing.

    Thanks Ronjor.


    Is it true that a encryption program is only as strongs as the passphrase? What the best algorithm? Where can I learn more about encyptions and algorithm?

    Personally I use DCS CryptoSuite. But I have used HandyBits EasyCrypto Deluxe in the past, it's a pretty good program, and also another freeware solution. ;)

    Thanks Dog. I used HandyBits before but I didn't like it. Plus Spybot ding about it everytime I ran Spybot. I can't remember what Spybot found, but it was a few years ago. :)
