Short Take: OpenPGP proposed as standard Net encryption technology

The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) has announced that OpenPGP protocol, Network Associates' open-standards version of its Pretty Good Privacy encryption technology, is being proposed as a standard for the Internet. The IETF is accepting comment on the proposal. The protocol likely will spread the use of encryption, as it will allow anyone to develop PGP-enabled computer security products independent of Network Associates.
