GPGServices is a plugin for the global OS X Services menu, which adds the ability to almost any application (e.g. Safari, Finder, or TextEdit) to use OpenPGP functionalities. In a nutshell:

  • Any folder: sign and encrypt.
  • Any file: verify, sign, import, encrypt, and decrypt.
  • Any text selection: verify and import.
  • Any text field: verify, sign, import, export, encrypt, and decrypt.

GPGServices works under Mac OS X and the actual cryptographic functionality is handled by MacGPG. Version 1.0 was previously released on July 4, 2006, by Robert Scott Goldsmith,[1] and since 2010 maintained by the GPGTools Project Team. Both GPGServices and MacGPG are free open-source software.
