Now this is cool. Chris Acheson was tired of crypto being too confusing for most people to grasp, so he put together Firefox Portable, GNU Privacy Guard, and FirePG into a simple-to-use package called CryptoFox.

The idea behind this is to lower the barrier to entry for using PGP encryption.  If you want to communicate privately with someone, instead of having to guide them through the install process for 3 different components, you can just have them download CryptoFox and run it.  No installation is required.

CryptoFox can be stored and run from USB drives, making it an excellent portable crypto tool. It’s also free and open source. Share it with your friends. Share it with everybody!

Get CryptoFox.
