ABSTRACT
This paper presents a key management and an encryption application for the Android operating system, which can be used to secure the privacy of messages exchanged among applications and Web services when accessed from mobile devices. In addition to the management of PGP keys, the application uses PGP encryption to secure the clipboard communication channel on the Android OS, which is widely used to exchange messages especially in the context of social networking and other Web-based services.
