The Story of PGP: Past, Present and Future

Recently we met with Jon Callas, CTO and CSO of PGP Corporation. Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) is today’s most used crypto software with a lot of history.

Presented here is the entire story of PGP in his words that covers everything from the the early days to future plans.

Callas discusses in detail how they managed to solve export issues in the past by publishing a book with source code that was later scanned and put together outside of the USA. You can also hear about the starting of today’s PGP Corporation when Network Associates decided to sell PGP as well as current PGP features and future plans.

The talk is 16:30 minutes long and is streamed in Flash format.
