PGP: Installation, Setup, and Training for Free

Copyright © 2001, 2002, 2005, 2008 by David E. Ross

I am so committed to expanding the use of PGP — both for digital signatures and for encryption — that I am willing to visit you in eastern Ventura County and western San Fernando Valley (California) to install and setup PGP 6.5.8 and give you preliminary training in its use for FREE. Note that, as a computer software professional for over 40 years, I could charge a consultant's fee of $50-$100 per hour for this service.

To qualify for this service, you must meet all of the following criteria:

For installation, I will download the latest end-user (not beta) version of PGP freeware from the PGP Corporation and install it. Alternatively, I will install PGP 8.0.1, which is the version I use. I will also edit the version line output by PGP so that it is shorter than the length of a line in an encrypted or signed message.

For setup, I will talk you through the task of creating your own PGP keys and archiving a key-revocation file (T).

For training (T), I will review with you the PGP User's Guide that I install with PGP and talk you through the tasks of

When I return home, I will send you an encrypted E-mail message so that you can practice decrypting it (T). You will have my phone number so that I can talk you through that process. Thereafter, I will be available via E-mail for additional help; however, questions that could be answered from the installed documentation or Help file will be answered by referring to those resources. And no, I do not know everything about PGP. I, too, submit questions to the relevant newsgroups.

If you are interested, send me E-mail envelope with stamp, indicating mail.

Items marked with (T) are part of your training.
