OpenPGP serves as a building block for secure personal communication, including in email and messaging software. This project provides OpenPGP documentation for application developers, for the upcoming "OpenPGP crypto-refresh" version of the standard.

Round 1 Summary

Each participating team submitted a final report and included a portion to be published.

The documentation project “OpenPGP for Application Developers,” part of the STF Contribute Back Challenges, has led to the creation of an extensive and accessible documentation for OpenPGP, a key cryptographic standard. This documentation bridges the gap between complex cryptographic concepts and practical application development, making it an invaluable resource for application developers. The work not only enhances the usability of OpenPGP but also contributes significantly to the broader cryptographic community by providing clear, comprehensive guidance on implementing secure communication and data protection methods.
