Please Donate – GnuPG needs your help!

Maintaining and improving GnuPG is costly. For more than a decade, g10code GmbH, a company owned and headed by GnuPG's principal author Werner Koch, is bearing the majority of these costs. To help them carry on this work, they need your support. Note that despite GnuPG carries an FSF copyright notice, they never funded the development or hosting costs.

If you are using GnuPG, Libgcrypt, GPGME, or Gpg4win and would like to help with development and maintenance please consider to make a donation.

We're not able to donate alot yet, but we will do just for giving an example. Please help GnuPG by donating now!

“Verizon's New, Encrypted Calling App Plays Nice With the NSA”

Cellcrypt and Verizon both say that law enforcement agencies will be able to access communications that take place over Voice Cypher, so long as they're able to prove that there's a legitimate law enforcement reason for doing so. Seth Polansky, Cellcrypt's vice president for North America, disputes the idea that building technology to allow wiretapping is a security risk. “It's only creating a weakness for government agencies,” he says. “Just because a government access option exists, it doesn't mean other companies can access it.”
