Abstract??” PDF Messenger using PGP provides clientless email encryption for secure email communications with large groups of customers and partners. Vast amounts of mission-critical information move in and out of businesses through email. However, the ability to ensure data confidentiality and verify its content and sender is one of the biggest security challenges today to any size organization. Concerns about protecting information privacy, preventing fraud, meeting ever tighter regulatory compliance guidelines, and secure, confirmed delivery of sensitive information are now vital requirements for all business communications. Unprotected email poses a critical risk to an enterprise??™s most sensitive data: customer information, financial data, trade secrets, and other proprietary information. Exposure of this information can result in financial loss, legal ramifications, and brand damage. By encrypting data down to the individual recipient, PGP PDF Messenger protects data from unauthorized access in transit over the public Internet, at rest on recipient mail servers, and at the endpoint.
Email is the most important business communications system in the world, enabling organizations to efficiently interact with customers, clients, and business partners. Yet unprotected email poses a critical risk to an enterprise??™s most sensitive data: customer information, financial data, trade secrets, and other proprietary information. Exposure of this information to unauthorized parties can result in financial loss, legal ramifications, and brand damage
PGP PDF Messenger automatically secures email messages as they leave the enterprise network according to highly configurable encryption rules, eliminating the need for client software or user intervention. Leveraging the broad adoption of PDF reader software, PGP PDF Messenger enables enterprises to address regulatory requirements and data breach risks without requiring special software or using proprietary email attachment encryption software.

GnuPG is the GNU projects complete and free implementation of the OpenPGP standard as defined by RFC4880 . GnuPG allows to encrypt and sign your data and communication, features a versatile key management system as well as access modules for all kinds of public key directories. GnuPG, 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. Version 2 of GnuPG also provides support for S/MIME.GnuPG is Free Software (meaning that it respects your freedom). It can be freely used, modified and distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License .GnuPG comes in two flavours: 1.4.11 is the well known and portable standalone version, whereas 2.0.16 is the enhanced and somewhat harder to build version.Project Gpg4win provides a Windows version of GnuPG. It is nicely integrated into an installer and features several frontends as well as (German) manuals.Project Aegypten developed the S/MIME functionality in GnuPG 2.
This method yields a result for the clientless email encryption for sending and transferring emails securely for the PDF messenger using MS-DOS PGP.
