How to Decrypt Data
Some of the DARTS data are encrypted with PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) or GnuPG.
Here is some information to decrypt these files.
- You need PGP or GPG software. See below.
- You need a password (key) to decrypt the encrypt files. The password should be sent you from the DARTS or projects.
- When you have PGP or GPG on your machine, you can decrypt an encrypted file with the following command:
echo $PASSWORD | gpg --cipher-algo=3des --passphrase-fd 0 $file
where $PASSWOD is the password and $file is the encrypted filename.
