"This software is SERIOUSLY outdated, and should not be used, period. "
This version of PGP Desktop, 9.0.2., dates from the fall of 2005. It thus pre-dates the introduction of Windows Vista, let alone Windows 7. PGP themselves consider this software obsolete. In 2009, both the GnuPG developers and PGP, Inc. themselves changed the default key format from DH/DSS to RSA. They also changed the default key size from 1024-bits to 2048-bits. This change was primarily motivated by the fact that the Digital Signature Standard is dependent on the SHA-1 hash algorithm, which has proven increasibly susceptible to attack. Even the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has recommened that 1024-bit keys not be used after December 31, 2010. This version of PGP (0.0.2) generates 1024-bit DH/DSS keys bey default, which are now deprecated. Anyone wanting to use this software should consider using Gnu Privacy Guard (GnuPG, or GPG for short) instead.
- See main review. Software failed to install on Windows Vista and Windows 7. While I have not tested it on Windows XP, it may install, but due to its age and obsolete status, it is most definitely NOT RECOMMENDED.
