An Easy Way To Encrypt And Decrypt Files From Commandline In Linux

Cause even our Linux friends need some love from time to time. Plus, I wanted to know how to do it myself.

Today, we are going to see how to encrypt and decrypt files from command line in Linux using a free utility called GPG. GNU Privacy Guard, shortly GPG or GnuPG, is a command line encryption and signing tool to secure files. We can easily encrypt the important and confidential files and documents using GPG and send/receive them over Internet. There are plethora of methods, applications, tools, and utilities are available to encrypt and decrypt files in Linux. But, I find this method is the easiest one. 

See how to do it here.
