This is the public PGP key of Frans Veldman, developer of the TBAV utilities.

PGP is a high security freeware "public key" cryptographic application,
developed by Philip Zimmermann. When I used PGP, it generated two keys -
the public one you will find below, and another one which is private to
me. If you're wondering what you can do with my public key, please read
on.

-> Software ENcrypted with one key can only be DEcrypted with the other key.

This means, if you encrypt a file with my public key, I am the only one
who is able to decrypt it. Now you can safely send me viruses! If I
provide you an encrypted CRC of all our files, you are able to decrypt
and verify this CRC. Nobody else is able to encrypt something that you
can decrypt with my public key. If you are able to decrypt a file with
my public key, you may rest assured that the file originated from me.

By using PGP, you (the user) and I (the developer of TBAV) have a secure
method of communicating with each other. No hacker can interfere, and
you are able to verify that the TBAV files are unmodified, free of
viruses, and originate from my system. You can also send me viruses,
without the risk that the viruses may spread to the wrong people.

THERE IS ONE RESTRICTION! You need to be ABSOLUTELY SURE that the public
key, listed below, is mine. Therefore, I strongly recommend that you
obtain this key DIRECTLY from me, or from a highly trusted source.
Since the key will never change, you may want to make just one phone
call to our Bulletin Board System - only once, for safety. Once you
have a trusted key, you may download your TBAV upgrades from everywhere.
Just check them with my public key, if the key matches, you have the
original copy of TBAV. Otherwise, you'd better get a more reliable
source...

Download or file request VELDMAN.PGP from our support system!

What do you need to do? You need the PGP program, which is available on
many BBSs, including our Thunderbyte support BBS. (F'req PGP)

Assuming that you have installed and configured PGP properly, use the
following command and answer the questions:
PGP -KA VELDMAN.PGP

You need to do this only once. (There is no need to separate the key
listed below from this message).

1) If we want you to be able to verify that a file originated from us,
I will supply a PGP signature created with my private key. (A PGP
signature is a type of CRC derived from the file, encrypted with
a private key). All you need to do is to invoke the command below:
PGP

For instance, we will put an Anti-Vir.Dat file in the TBAV archive,
and a text file SECURITY.DOC which contains the PGP signature.
If you download the TBAV archive, first check with PGP whether this
Anti-Vir.Dat file is original:
PGP SECURITY.DOC ANTI-VIR.DAT

PGP will now tell you whether this ANTI-VIR.DAT file was created by
me and unmodified. If it has found to be reliable, you can now use
TbScan to find out if the TBAV utilities do match the ANTI-VIR.DAT
records. If this is also true, you are sure you have the original
TBAV files!

2) If you want to send us an encrypted file, invoke the command below:
PGP -E "Frans Veldman"

PGP will create a file with the same name as the original file, but
with the extension '.PGP'. You can safely send me that file, I'm
the only one who is able to decrypt it.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
