Performance Analysis of PGP

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Nigel Thomas



In this paper we will present measurements taken from two different versions of the PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) cryptosystem running on a number of different machines under Fedora Linux and MS Windows XP. The results show that there are some differences with other published measurements of the individual encryption algorithms and also some performance variation between platforms and PGP distributions.
