This project aims to implement signing/encryption of the emails sent to a mailing list. This creates of a secure through-the-email channel for the distribution of information among a group of people. The messages in this channel are authenticated( verified that message is indeed sent by the user in the from field) and/or encrypted( during the transmission) . It uses public-key encryption standard like OpenPGP to encrypt and/or sign the messages.
