Gpg4kde describes maintained installation packages for email and file encryption for GNU/Linux and other unix-like operating systems.
Both relevant cryptographic standards OpenPGP and S/MIME are fully supported, especially the german Sphinx specification for V-PKI.
The predecessor of Gpg4kde was Ägypten-2 which aimed at establishing all basic functionalities.
