Linux Encryption - Windows Decryption


Hey all,
Trying to find an app that will allow me to encrypt a file on my RHEL3 or 4 box, and decrypt that same file on a windowsXP box.

Any ideas? Thanks so much!

Josh

GnuPG. To do what you're describing, at very least you'll need a public key on the RHEL box and its associated secret key on the Windows box.

There is a Windows binary - GnuPG 1.4.7 compiled for Microsoft Windows - as of this writing.

http://www.gnupg.org/download/

I haven't tested/used it, though. It does mention that it's a CLI tool; if I had known it was "for dummies" I may not have suggested it.

Yes, My company has sensitive data that needs to get to the Police Dept.
We should be glad they know how to use email.
