GPGTools Release Unified Installer for MacGPG/GPGMail

The guys at GPGTools have taken control of the MacGPG2, GPGMail, GPG Keychain Access and GPG Services projects, and have released a single unified installer that installs all of these apps. They are maintaining these tools, which are all 64-bit and Snow Leopard compatible. The package also include Enigmail, a GPG-compatible plugin for Thunderbird (Mozilla’s free email client).

GPG is an open source alternative to PGP’s suite of public key encryption software (PGP Desktop), which allows you to encrypt/decrypt files and emails and create/validate digital signatures.

For more information, check out my tutorial on using GPGMail to send encrypted emails on Mac OS X.

Using GPGMail to Encrypt Email

This post forms part of the series on Securing Leopard, and covers GPGMail, Mail.app plugin that allows you to digitally sign, encrypt and decrypt emails using PGP/GPG.

When Snow Leopard came around, it completely broke support for GPGMail, and there were no other solutions that enabled similar functionality. This caused a significant issue for Snow Leopard users needing GPG functionality. The original developer of GPGMail unfortunately did not have the time to update the plugin and restore support for Snow Leopard.

Since then the GPGMail project has been handed over to a new team of developers who have been working on restoring the full functionality of the plugin under 10.6. This tutorial shows you how to easily install GPGMail and start sending and receiving encrypted emails!

[Updated 21/01/2011] The team at GPGTools have now created a unified installer which consolidates MacGPG2, GPG Keychain Access, GPGMail and GPG Service. Their all-in-one installer simplifies the install process, and installs everything you need for encrypting/signing files and emails.

If you’ve used the GPGTools package, please post your experiences in the comments!
