OpenPGP is an end-to-end privacy protocol based on public key
 
cryptography.  Unlike X.509, the public key infrastructure used
 
to secure the web, OpenPGP uses a "web of trust" model where
 
individuals verify others' identity and "sign" their keys.  A
 
signature is a cryptographic assertion that a key with a given
 
user ID (uid) is actually owned by that person.
