== About this Wiki
The aim of the ~GnuPG Project and the initiative ~Gpg4win is
to provide software solutions for everyone to
* enable email and file end-to-end security, **offering protection against being listened to by servers or transport systems**.
* use openly researched crypto algorithms.
* allow the implementations to be independently audited.
(Which is achieved by publishing them as [[https://fsfe.org/about/basics/freesoftware.en.html|Free Software]].)
In 2015 a big challenge for a better user experience for **email and file-transport security**
is certificate discovery and trust building. The [[https://g10code.com/steed.html|STEED]] concept proposes

GnuPG for Developers
- How to use GnuPG from your application (GnuPG's API)
- Building GnuPG 2.1: GnuPG 2.1 is the latest GnuPG version but as with all 2.x versions it has several dependencies, which make building it a bit more difficult. Here are some notes.
- API checker: Upstream-Tracker.org checks ABI/API changes for some libraries like gpgme, libgpg-error, libgcrypt.
Note that the tools can't necessary decide whether something is an ABI or API change. The output should be used as a hint to look for whether there might be a problem. We are not aware of any broken API or ABI contracts for the listed libraries.
