OpenPGP_Applet - GNOME applet for OpenPGP text encryption

OpenPGP_Applet is a GNOME applet written in Perl that allows encryption and decryption of the clipboard's content with a symmetric cipher using a passphrase. This is a graphical front-end on top of GnuPG.

Asymmetric decryption and clipboard verification are also supported.

Formerly a part of Tails, the Anonymous Incognito Live System, now available as a separate project as well.

This website is quite minimal, but you can find user documentation with screenshot on Tails wiki. Please refer to the README file for installation if you don't use the Debian Package.


Development takes place as a git repository hosted on the same server than Tails itself :
