Here you'll find my port of GnuPG to the RISC OS platform. For further reference,
please have a look at the official home page of GnuPG.
As GnuPG is a project of GNU and
is therefore placed under the GNU General Public Licence
(GPL) you'll find the source as well as precompiled binaries
on this page.
All the files are packed into ZIP archives. You can unpack them

I don't give any guarantee for usefulness and reliability.
Downloading and using any or the applications is totally at your own
If you do however have any comments, suggestions or found any
bugs, don't hesitate to contact me (click the email address in
the page footer).
And even if you think you don't need to contect me, it would
be still nice if you did it anyway. I would like to keep track of how
many people are using my port of GnuPG out there. Just out of
curiosity and in order to be able to inform you if security
problems are detected.
GnuPG for RISC OS (stable version)
This is the official release. You have to download
this archive in every case, except you want to
compile your own version, then you just need to
download the source below. This version comes
without the IDEA algorithm. Therefore you can't
use it for PGP 2.x backwards compatibility. If
however you're just starting with PGP and
don't have to worry about backwards
compatibility, then you don't need any of the
below archives (perhaps you'll want the
internationalisation archive, if you're not
happy with English).
Version 0.10 of Theo Markettos' CryptRandom
module is included in this release.
If you're new to GnuPG, you should perhaps
read a bit into The GNU
Privacy Handbook before starting to use
In addition, there is the introduction on Nat
Queen's PGP for RISC OS pages at http://www.queen.clara.net/pgp/acorn.html.

|This is the source code for GnuPG for RISC OS.
You'll need Acorn C/C++ and UnixLib in order to
compile it. It's the GPL'ed source, that is
without IDEA. If you want IDEA support, download the
IDEA add-on archive and follow the instructions.
Partially linked GnuPG
|If you want the IDEA algorithm, then you have to
do part of the work yourself as I can't
distribute binaries with IDEA support. IDEA was a
patented algorithm from Ascom which is freely
available for non-commercial usage. But in order to
comply with the GPL, there mustn't be any
patented algorithm in the source. That's why this
archive contains a partially linked GnuPG binary. You
have to link it against the IDEA archive below for
yourself. Instruction of how to do it are
|In this archive you'll find the IDEA source
code together with a precompiled object file and a
script which will link it together with the partially
linked GnuPG file in the archive above. Please note,
that you may NOT use the IDEA algorithm
Additional useful tools
|This is is a PGP packet visualizer which displays
the packet format of OpenPGP (RFC 2440 + bis) and PGP
version 2 (RFC 1991). You can verify and debug PGP
messages, keys, etc. with it.
|This is a wrapper around GnuPG that emulates the
command line options of PGP 2.6 so that you can still
use the syntax you're already used to. It
doesn't however produce the output that PGP 2.6
would produce, it produces the output that GnuPG
produces. So it only works if you are not dependent
on the output.
