Sending Sensitive Information

We recommend that you encrypt sensitive information in email to protect it from being viewed by unintended recipients. We prefer OpenPGP standard cryptography, which usually means Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) or the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG or GPG). However, can use S/MIME or other methods on a case-by-case basis.

Those unable to use PGP can contact us at <cert@cert.org> or +1 412-268-5800 to arrange alternative methods.

We also encourage you to check the PGP signature on email and documents to verify the authenticity and integrity of mail from the CERT/CC.
