Free and Open Source Encryption Software for Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the best ways to protect sensitive 
| computer data like credit card numbers and 
| social security information is to use 
| encryption software. Encryption software 
| executes an algorithm that is designed to 
| encrypt data in such a way that it cannot be 
| recovered (decrypted) without access to the 
| key. It is a main component of all aspects 
| of file protection and computer 
| communication. Files on hard drives and 
| other removable media, email messages, and 
| packets sent over computer networks can be 
| made secure by encryption software.
