As for a public, open source solution, the GNU PG (Privacy Guard) is a
reasonable solution... Their URL is: http://www.gnupg.org/ and as for
OS support, here is a paste from their site:
GnuPG works fine on *GNU/Linux* with x86, alpha, mips, sparc64, m68k or
powerpc CPUs. (x86 is the primary development system, the other CPUs are
only checked from time to time.)
It compiles okay on *GNU/Hurd* but because Mach has no random device, it
should not be used for real work. Work is underway to add an random device.
*FreeBSD* with x86 CPU works fine.
*OpenBSD* works fine (x86 CPU?).
*NetBSD* works fine (x86 CPU?).
*Windows* 95/98/NT/2000/ME with x86 CPU works fine (you need a special
setup to build it).
*PocketConsole <http://www.symbolictools.de/public/pocketconsole/>* - a
Windows NT-like console for the Pocket PC - is supported.
*MacOS X* is also supported; please see macgpg.sf.net
<http://macgpg.sf.net> for detailed information.
GnuPG compiles and runs on many more systems, but due to the lack of a
well tested entropy source, it /should be used with some caution/. We
have positive reports on these systems:
* *AIX* v4.3
* *BSDI* v4.0.1 with i386
* *HPUX* v9.x, v10.x and v11.0 with HPPA CPU
* *IRIX* v6.3 with MIPS R10000 CPU
* *MP-RAS* v3.02
* *OSF1* V4.0 with Alpha CPU
* *OS/2* version 2
* *SCO* UnixWare/7.1.0
* *SunOS*, *Solaris* on Sparc and x86
* *USL Unixware* v1.1.2
