Extra info and code examples

GnuPG is GNU's tool for secure communication and data storage. It can be used to encrypt data and to create digital signatures. It includes an advanced key management facility and is compliant with the proposed OpenPGP Internet standard as described in RFC 4880. The gnupg1 package provides GnuPG 1.4, the "classic" standalone, non-modularized version. It is provided mainly for people with the need to use archaic cryptographic objects like PGPv3 keys to access archived messages. It does not support more recent cryptographic primitives like ECDSA or EdDSA. Please use the gnupg package instead unless you know for sure that you need gnupg1. The gnupg1 package is built without libcurl to minimize dependencies, so it does not support HKPS keyservers. Install the gnupg1-curl package if you want to use the keyserver helper tools built with libcurl and supporting HKPS.
