LXer: Getting started with commandline encryption tools on Linux

Published at LXer:

Encryption is the process of encoding messages or information in such a way that only authorized parties can read them. With almost no privacy in this digital generation of our's, encryption of our data is one of the most required tools. Most of the applications like gmail encrypt our data, but the data on your system is still unsecured and there are hackers or unauthorised users waiting to access them.

I would not encrypt large files with RSA, it is very slow. Instead, use public key crypto to distribute the key for symmetric encryption and use symmetric encryption to encrypt files.
