NEW FEATURES IN 6.5.1

PGPnet. PGPnet is a landmark product in the
history of PGP. PGPnet secures all TCP/IP communications between
itself and any other machine running PGPnet. PGPnet has been
successfully tested with Cisco routers(requires Cisco IOS 12.0(4)
or later with IPSec TripleDES), Linux FreeS/WAN, and many
others.

Self-Decrypting Archives. You may now encrypt
files or folders into Self-Decrypting Archives (SDA) which can be
used by users who do not even have PGP. The archives are completely
independent of any application, compressed and protected by PGP’s
strong cryptography.

Integrated PGP Command Line. This version
incorporates the popular command line version of PGP for Windows
platforms. This product provides you a convenient way to integrate
PGP with other Windows applications and automated processes on your
desktop system. Please note that this is intended for single
user/workstation use. For use on servers, customers are required to
purchase the PGP Command Line/Batch Server product. Please contact
your local Network Associates Sales representative for more
information.

Automated Freespace Wiping. PGP’s Freespace
Wipe feature now allows you to use the Windows Task Scheduler to
schedule periodic secure wiping of the freespace on your disk.

Hotkeys. The Use Current Window feature has
been significantly enhanced by the addition of Hotkeys. By pressing
the configured key combination, the Encrypt/Decrypt/Sign functions
can be automatically invoked in zero clicks without using
PGPtray.

Fingerprint Word List. When verifying a PGP
public key fingerprint, you can now choose to view the fingerprint
as a word list instead of hexadecimal characters. The word list in
the fingerprint text box is made up of special authentication words
that PGP uses and are carefully selected to be phonetically
distinct and easy to understand without phonetic ambiguity.

Support for Outlook 2000 and Outlook Express
5.0
. This version of PGP adds support for sending and
receiving encrypted e-mail in Microsoft Outlook 2000 and Outlook
Express 5.0.

HTTP Proxy Support. If you are behind a
corporate firewall with an HTTP proxy server, PGP now supports
accessing HTTP keyservers through the proxy. To use this feature,
you must configure the proxy server address in your Internet
Explorer preferences.

Smart Word Wrapping. The word wrapping in PGP
now automatically rewraps paragraphs and even quoted paragraphs
resulting in much cleaner signed messages.
