    Summary     : Utility for secure communication and data storage
    Description :
    GnuPG is GNU's tool for secure communication and data storage.  It can
    be used to encrypt data and to create digital signatures.  It includes
    an advanced key management facility and is compliant with the proposed
    OpenPGP Internet standard as described in RFC2440 and the S/MIME
    standard as described by several RFCs.
    
    GnuPG 2.0 is a newer version of GnuPG with additional support for
    S/MIME.  It has a different design philosophy that splits
    functionality up into several modules. The S/MIME and smartcard functionality
    is provided by the gnupg2-smime package.
