PGP for E90

Since Zenobyte apparently discarded their Symbian port of PGP, I tested successfully an other way to run PGP 2.6.3i (an old command line version) on a Symbian S60v3 machine (see here for important details).

Summarized explanation:
  • Install PGP 2.3.i somewhere within the emulator's volume (in "c:\pgp\" for example)
  • Adjust "dosbox.conf" (autoexec.bat section: add "PATH = z:\;c:\pgp;" plus "SET PGPPATH=C:\PGP" plus "set tz=-9") and PGP's "config.txt" according to your device
  • Build some basic batches like "cr.bat" (crypt) and "de.bat" (decrypt) to make it easier
And that's it.

  • Only "legacy RSA" keys are accepted (generate an ad hoc key pair and certify it)
  • Avoid signing, as the DosBox emulator is unable to manage time and date
  • Manage your keys on a PC copy, as the keyboard layout may be inadequate within s60DosBox
