Problem med PGP på Snow Leopard

September 3rd, 2009 by Joachim Strömbergson Leave a reply »

Apples nya operativsystem Mac OSX 10.6. Snow Leopard (SL) ser ut att skapa problem för användare som vill använda PGP. Enligt en postning på Cryptography-listan avråder PGP Corporation sina användare från att uppgradera till SL:


PGP Corporation does not recommend using PGP® Desktop with Mac OS X 10.6 at this time, neither the 32 bit nor 64 bit versions of Snow Leopard are currently supported by PGP Corporation. This includes PGP® Whole Disk Encryption, PGP® Desktop Professional, PGP® Desktop Home and PGP® Desktop Email.

This email is to advise you that if you are running PGP® Whole Disk Encryption, PGP® Desktop Professional, PGP® Desktop Home or PGP® Desktop Email, you should NOT upgrade to Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard).

If you intend to upgrade to Snow Leopard, you must decrypt all PGP® encrypted drives and uninstall PGP® Desktop before upgrading the system to Mac OS X 10.6.

After upgrading your system you should not attempt to re-encrypt any disks with PGP® Whole Disk Encryption as it is likely to lead to potential data loss or other system and data issues.

We expect support for Mac OS X 10.6 to be available in the next major release of PGP® Desktop (10.0). PGP Corporation recommends waiting until PGP® Desktop 10.0 is available before upgrading to Mac OS X 10.6. If you would like to be notified when the beta version becomes available, please register at http://www.pgp.com/developers/beta/request.html .

If you have questions about PGP® Desktop and Mac OS X 10.6, please visit our support site https://pgp.custhelp.com/app/

PGP Corporation announced PGP WDE for Mac OS X last year – a native Mac application that was designed from the ground up for the Mac. PGP Corporation is committed to providing Macintosh users the best possible encryption solutions and we’ve been building them since re- starting the company in 2003.

The overall experience of PGP WDE for Snow Leopard will be the same. You’ll notice PGP WDE for Mac OS X is controlled using PGP Desktop, which can be expanded to secure email and files as well.

Users of PGP WDE for Mac OS X will have a new pre-boot authentication screen that protects access to the machine before the operating system loads. To see some of the work so far we have posted screen shots to the PGP Perspectives blog.

Det finns även en hel del Mac-användare som använder GPGMail. Tyvärr verkar det även vara problem med GPGMail på Snow Leopard:

Summary: GPGMail & Snow Leopard (10.6)

Dear Users,
Current version of GPGMail (1.2.0) is NOT compatible with coming Snow Leopard’s Mail.

New Mail’s internals changed a lot, like it did with all major revisions of Mac OS X, and as Apple doesn’t give any documentation nor any support for such an unsupported plugin, developers have to work by trials and errors. Based on my experience of previous compatibility work, I can estimate that the workload to make GPGMail compatible with Snow Leopard is at least 40 hours, for me.

Unfortunately I no longer have spare time to do that work (I’ve always been working on GPGMail during my spare time, not during my work time).

Some people proposed their help, but at this time no one has been able to find enough time to actually do the work. For unexperienced people it will take much more time to do it. In consequence, there will not be an update of GPGMail for Snow Leopard in the coming months, not even a beta version. If serious people want to do the work, I will gladly try to help them as much as I can; just contact me.

I’m sorry to leave you without GPGMail on Snow Leopard; until someone does the port, you’ll have to rely on Thunderbird and its Enigmail plugin.

Dessa problem kommer naturligtvis att lösa sig, men det är synd att viktiga säkerhetsapplikationer slås ut.
