Note that my pages use some different but very nice fonts. For the best effect, download fonts.zip and unzip them into your fonts directory. For more great fonts, check out Dave Central's font of the day.
The table of contents to the left is a list of other webpages that I run, the one below is strictly regarding PGP. Please look through it and select what is most relevant to your search. Start with the Introduction if you wish, more details about the rest of the links are provided in it.
As of December, I'm trying to pay for web storage, etc. using Shout's banner ads (seen at the top of the page). Please consider clicking on it if the ad is at all interesting to you, as I only receive income from clicks. I'm just a student trying to be useful to the cyber-community. Show your support for free information!
Just a please note: PGP is a company started by Phil Zimmerman, the original author of the program PGP. It joined with a few other companies to form Network Associates. If you're interested in their encryption systems for commercial enterprise, check out PGP Enterprise for Windows. They also have a freeware version for download.
This site hosts the PC Privacy Ring but is also a member of some others (shown below):

Nov 15th, 1999 Free Speech violated(?) by King County District Judge in a ruling that prohibits a man from posting to rec.skiing.alpine for the period of one full year. Is this compatible with your rights? Contact your government representatives about this ruling!
Nov 14th, 1999 DVD's encryption system has been broken for a few weeks now and according to both a Wired Magazine article and a researcher's paper (mirrored here just in case), the blame should be on the US government export controls.
Nov 10th, 1999 It seems that digital signatures may finally have legal status in the US. Let's see if Canada (and other free countries) will follow.

Aug 16th, 1999 A recent Maximum PC news alert shows that the Feds are going to drop their plans to stealthily monitor the Internet. This is a boost to your privacy!

The latest international version of PGP, version 6.0.2i, is now available for download from http://www.pgpi.com. It includes the ability to encrypt a portion of your local hard drive (create a virtual encrypted volume) and to attach photographs to public keys, among other new features. -- Udhay Shankar N <[email protected]>
February 9th, 1999 CuD today has a couple more good articles on current Internet censorship laws (and how they can't be enforced). Having the freedom to choose to or not to do things is always nice, hmm?

January 31st, 1999 The Computer Underground Digest today had a few good articles on recent deveopments regarding Internet Censorship laws, etc.
I don't usually recommend movies here, but I would highly recommend seeing Enemy of the State with Will Smith as it is a great example of "Big Brother" at work. A good all 'round movie too contrary to the review on the above site. Buy it on
remember: it's your choice!
