    OpenPGP is a nonproprietary encryption suite that uses public key encryption to exchange e-mail messages and files (either e-mail attachments or files that might be exchanged via other means, e.g., web-based transfers) between individuals within and across institutions. OpenPGP can also secure files stored on mobile devices or in the cloud.
