    GnuPG is a complete and free replacement for PGP. It is a valuable piece of software that is very easy to use and will serve our purpose for covering the topic of secure backups. I won't got into details in installing GnuPG as there are number of good installation guides around that pretty much cover this topic (faqs.org, linux-tutorial.info and web.bham.ac.uk). Depending on your server and administrator, GnuPG will be ither pre-installed, installed after bugging the administrator or installed by yourself if you have sufficient local privileges. . . .

    I'm working for a relatively large Internet Presence Provider (IPP) that servs about 4000 clients from about 30 countries worldwide. Besides a chunk of e-mails to our support regarding viruses, leaching and insecure Perl/PHP scripts, I've seen a number of questions related to securely downloading backups.
