Default It's time for PGP to die, says ... no, not the NSA – a US crypto prof

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/08/14/pgp_viability/

A senior cryptographer has sparked debate after calling time on PGP – the gold standard for email and document encryption.

Matthew Green is an assistant research professor who lectures in computer science and cryptography at Johns Hopkins University in Maryland, US. This week, on his personal blog, he argued that it's "time for PGP to die", describing it as "downright unpleasant".
