    "Working Great Again"

    February 23, 2011  |   By zunipus

    Version: GPG Keychain Access 0.8.4

    Pros

    GPG provides free and Open Source equivalent of PGP encryption and services on the Mac OS X platform. Recent bugs have been overcome, restoring it to vigor once again.

    Cons

    There is a steep learning curve to understand and properly use Gnu Privacy Guard (GPG).

    Summary

    The GPG project needs developers! It also needs donations!

    I have to thank those on the GPG Mac teams for responding to the need for updates to all the GPG tools. The result is a return to full functionality. I have it working beautifully.

    There is an overall package of GPGTools of which GPG Keychain Access is but one component. I recommend the entire package. Here is where you can read about it and download it:

    http://www.gpgtools.org/

    This site has an excellent introduction to cryptography and digital signatures. It explains why they is CRITICAL for the modern world of computing. If you are serious about computer security this is well worth reading and thoroughly understanding.

    What remains confusing is that there are two branches, v1.x and v2.x, in the MacGPG project. Theoretically, the two branches can both be installed and run together without conflicts. However, my problems late in 2010 were directly attributable to the two branches NOT being compatible at that time. Therefore, I STRONGLY suggest picking one or the other and ONLY using that branch on into the future, despite arguments to the contrary. If I had followed this advice I'd have saved myself months of suffering.

    Personally, I am sticking with the current v1.x version 1.4.11 and not installing the v2.x branch, which was previously the source of bugs. I have installed 1.4.11 via MacTools and have it running great with all the other GPG tools.

    The complete current version of GPGTools includes:
    - GPG Keychain Access (for creating, sharing and storing keys)
    - MacGPG2 (the underlying process for Gnu Privacy Guard)
    - GPGMail (which works with Apple Mail)
    - GPGServices (sign, verify and key sharing via the Services menu)
    - GPGPreferences (a System Preferences pane)
    - EnigMail (which works with Mozilla eMail, i.e. Thunderbird)

    Get the entire package, learn and use it. It's stupendous stuff and well worth supporting, back in action all thanks to some very dedicated recent work.

    Updated on Feb 23, 2011

    CORRECTION: I have installed MacGPG via *MacPorts*.

    You can read about and download MacPorts at:

    "Project In Chaos: Avoid For Now"

    January 7, 2011  |   By zunipus

    Version: GPG Keychain Access 0.7.0.1

    Pros

    None. Used to work great.

    Cons

    Broken. Developer in-fighting. User abuse.

    Summary

    I was once quite a champion of GnuPG for Mac, put up with the massive geek factor and had it working perfectly. But these days GnuPG is broken on Mac OS X 10.6.x. Don't bother playing with it unless you're one of the developers, it's that nasty at the moment. I've attempted many times over the last full year to help the project, saw great hope last spring, only to have hope dashed this winter with a cacophony of developer infighting, endlessly frustrated would-be users, censored list posts, and chaos all round. I have never seen this before and hope I never do again. RUN AWAY from this software for now, until... (all join hands and pray) ...someone sane takes over the project and straightens out the bloody mess. Until then, I wish the project well.
