Summary

In our communication regarding Advisory Notes and other important mass e-mails we sign our messages with 'gpg' (GnuPG) so that authenticity can be verified.


Reference Information

If you receive an e-mail from noreply@foxt.com starting with:

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA512

...

You can verify the authenticity of the message directly in many e-mail clients (OpenPGP plugin may be required) or with 'gpg' by saving the complete message body to a text file, for example /tmp/mailbody.txt.

You also need to import our public key (also attached as a .txt file):

-----BEGIN PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK-----

Version: GnuPG v1.4.5 (GNU/Linux)
