A Practical Introduction to GPG in Windows

This guide, written by Brendan Kidwell, shows you how to use the free public key cryptography system GnuPG from a Windows user perspective. It started life as an outline for a talk Brendan was going to give in his Cryptology class, but it quickly grew into a document that stands on its own.

The document is available in several formats which can be read on-line or downloaded from Brendan's page .

Let us hope that this guide will help out Windows users who are dying to effectively install and use GnuPG on their systems. So that, nobody will never ever say that "after reading the whole of www.gnupg.org I still couldn't get the thing to work" ;-)
