[ My apologies for the delay, there were some mail problems - Anand. ]

Well friends, here is the (slightly delayed due to exams) Newsletter for
June 1997. No one really sent me anything to edit for this one, so I'll
just have to write something myself I guess. :) As usual, we have the
upcoming events list from the Executive. I've also added a section on PGP
myself so that there is actually something (hopefully) a little
more entertaining to read. It's pretty long, but I recommend you at least
browse over it, even if just to get an idea of where to go and read about
it when you feel like it. For those who still have exams to go, good
luck! For whenever you finish, party on and enjoy your break.

party this Friday at about 7:00pm. If you would like to join in, and have
you key signed by others then send him a copy of your public-key and let

Privacy and PGP
I've lately gotten onto the PGP bandwagon both from personal interest and
work requirements. I won't attempt to give a complete discussion of
Privacy, PGP and cryptography in general as each topic alone has managed
to make a lot of people a lot of money in writing books on the subject. I
will attempt to give a brief overview of the topics and refer you off to
elsewhere for the gory details. It is an endeavour worth undertaking for
anyone who wants privacy of any sort. My apologies to Phil Zimmermann as
I've paraphrased a lot from his documentation on PGP. Definately read
the complete version for yourself. It comes with distributions of pgp-2.6.3i.
