Oh yeah.

The answer to your question about getting a PGP public key.
There is an option in the PGP program to generate a Public and Private Keyset. You keep the private one (obviously) and give everyone else the public one (and use this one on your website to encrypt your emails).


>I need to create a site for a client that has "fully secure forms." That is, security that goes down to the wire, until we receive the information. (The site is for on-line divorces, which will require extremely sensitive information to be put into lengthy forms).
>It seems that the way to do this is two fold: First I have to have the site and forms located on secure server; Second, I have to use PGP encryption on the e-mail when the information is downloaded to us. Am I correct so far? (Is there some other method that I should know about?)
>At any rate, assuming I'm correct, then how do I go about (a) obtaining a PGP Public Key? and (b) what do I need to learn to use this to send encrypted e-mail? (Or will it be easier and more cost efficent to have Jim do it?)
>Thanks for any input.
