Is anyone aware of any critical evaluations
performed on the security of the Network Associates
(a.k.a. McAfee) PGP for Personal Privacy? Traditionally,
PGP source code has always been available for
evaluation by the Net community, but this isn't the
case with the newer commercial versions.
Additionally, and this is a bit paranoid, but PGP in
the past has come with digitally signed files to
authenticate the integrity of the files. Once again,
commercial versions offer no such guarantee that the
software hasn't been tampered with between the factory
and the store shelves.
