 NAME
      GnuPG - The GNU Privacy Guard suite of programs

 DESCRIPTION
      GnuPG is a set of programs for public key encryption and digital
      signatures.  The program most users will want to use is the OpenPGP
      command line tool, named gpg2.  gpgvis a stripped down version of gpg2
      with no encryption functionality, used only to verify signatures
      against a trusted keyring.  gpgsm is the X.509/CMS (for S/MIME)
      counterpart of gpg2. gpg-agent is a passphrase and private key daemon
      which may also emulate the ssh-agent.

      The full documentation for this tool is maintained as a Texinfo
      manual.  If GnuPG and the info program are properly installed at your
      site, the command

      should give you access to the complete manual including a menu
      structure and an index.
