"Useful Security Tools: PGP & ssh"

Abstract

This week's seminar will be tutorial in nature, and will introduce everyone to two useful tools available on Unix, Macs & WinTel machines: ssh and pgp.b

ssh is the "secure shell" and is used to protect remote logins and copies from network sniffing and TCP hijacking.

PGP is a package using public key encryption for private mail, digital signatures on files, and private encryption.



Unless otherwise noted, the security seminar is held on Wednesdays at 4:30P.M. STEW G52 (Suite 050B), West Lafayette Campus. More information...
