PGP Protocol Overview

PGP Protocol Overview Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) is both a protocol and the name of the program that most widely implements that protocol. The PGP protocol, documented in RFC 1991, is a presentation layer protocol that defines a standard to cryptographically secure email messages. RFC 2015 describes how various kinds of PGP messages should be encapsulated using MIME.
