Recommended Posts

dear community, 


which wingpg you would suggest?

is win gpg really free ?





saw it here; https://scand.com/products/wingpg/


note  - generally i run linux on the notebooks - but on one machine i have win installed. 


i need a gpg client for this notebook - what would you do?


read about the WinGPG - see below:

WinGPG is a tray-based classical Windows application, Windows NT Explorer shell extension, and a classic GPGv2 distribution. Secure your data with our simple encryption tool.



Data protection
Secure your files against unwanted tampering. Let no one jeopardize your privacy. Protect your data with WinGPG by Scand.
Encrypt your documents with pleasure. Decrypt them easy. Secure your messaging. Encrypted files are automatically zipped and ready for transmission.
Sign out your documents. Verify signed files sent to you. Make sure the recipient gets the information he is intended to.
Free and open source
No costs. Source included. Get our code and gain confidence in a full package.
Simple yet powerful UI
No additional certification, no undemanded updates, classic Windows interface. Though clipboard support, context menus, hotkeys are integrated.
100% secure
Is GPG code secure enough? WinGPG sure is. Being a ‘shell’ for original GPG makes it your must-have protection tool.



question  - can you suggest this win gpg client1

hello dear Requinix


many thanks for the hint - youre right. 

btw, can we use the key from WinGPG or - the alternative tool GpG4Win on a Kgpg - that is a Linux-based-System


in other words - can i use the key pair - consisting of priv and pub key in both systems. 

note;: at home i run linux - and in offixce i run win-machines. 


so i need to have both clients. 


look forward to hear from you 


have a great day

If you can explain to me the concept of GPG then I'll tell you who to ask for an answer.

hello dear requinix ;)


many thanks for the reply.   well all is a bit confusing - i know. 

i run  https://www.gpg4win.de/ on a win machine:  

https://www.gpg4win.de: this is a pgp-based (oriented System)  i run this on my office win-machine. 

at home i run manjaro-linux. 

question: can i tranfer the keys from the office based win system https://www.gpg4win.de/

to the manjaro-linux based kgpg !? 

is this possible

Love to hear from you 

greetngs dil_bert

Again, if you can tell me how GPG the concept works then I can tell you who will (hopefully) know whether you can transfer keys between applications.
