    Default PGP, GnuPG?
    I'd love to see a port of GnuPG so that we can use PGP or actually the open-source GPG on the iPhone. I know it already uses some GPG encryption, so can't we use that toward our emails, and import our keys, etc. somehow?

    would LOVE to use PGP encryption and decryption for emails on the iPhone. I would pay for that app without blinking.

    Has anyone successfully compiled gnupg 1.4.9 with IDEA on (or for) the iPhone? (on a 2.2 FW)

    I would gladly pay for an iPhone pgp/gpg email app. Any devs feel like taking this one on?

    Default GPL + iPhone SDK licence.
    AFAIK the iPhone SDK licence and the GPG (GPL) are not compatible. Making impossible to go a GPG for the iPhone legally.

    That is absolutely not correct, rxantos. A simple search for gpl on the App Store will show this. Various games like Tyrian and Doom are there which have been released under GPL, as well as all kinds of other programs.

    Please, someone, modify GPG to work under iPhone OS! It's just a stripped-down Unix, it can't be that hard. There should at least be something available in the jailbreak stores, one would think, but no -- nothing. The market is here. We want to pay you money! Please, help us, Obi-Wan Kenobi; you are our only hope!

    iPGMail is a new app in the store that supports PGP mail and does NOT use GPG or any other Gnu licensed libraries. It is integrated with the iPhone/iPad mail.app so that it can send and receive encrypted/signed messages as attachments. No awkward cut-and-paste necessary. Key generation is supported as is public key download from the public SKS key servers.

    All for only $1.99. Try it out and leave feedback.

    iPGMail for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store
