Description

This article is from the PGP FAQ, by Jeff Licquia jalicqui@prairienet.org with numerous contributions by others.

1.9. Is there a commercial version of PGP available?

Yes; by arrangement with the author of PGP, a company called ViaCrypt
is marketing a version of PGP that is almost identical to the freeware
version. Each can read or write messages which the other can
understand.

ViaCrypt reports:

- -----
If you are a commercial user of PGP in the USA or Canada, contact
Viacrypt in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. The commercial version of PGP
is fully licensed to use the patented RSA and IDEA encryption
algorithms in commercial applications, and may be used in
corporate and government environments in the USA and Canada. It
is fully compatible with, functionally the same as, and just as
strong as the freeware version of PGP. Due to limitations on
ViaCrypt's RSA distribution license, ViaCrypt only distributes
executable code and documentation for it, but they are working on
making PGP available for a variety of platforms. Call or write
to them for the latest information. The latest version number
for Viacrypt PGP is 2.7. [Note: Since this statement was issued,
ViaCrypt has updated ViaCrypt PGP to 2.7.1.]
