PGP keys


[E]mails can and should be encrypted by everyone. The often-repeated claim that a person has no secrets and thus has no need to encrypt messages must be countered by pointing out that written messages are not normally sent on postcards. However, an unencrypted e-mail is nothing than a letter without an envelope. [...] The public authorities should set a good example and themselves employ encryption as a standard practice in order to demystify the process.
