Why do I have to send these documents overseas in paper form? It's 2018 and you're still asking me to print, sign the damn form with a pen, and send it to the other side of the planet physically?

Well... The post is shit, expensive, and the tracking is more shit. This packet doesn't seem to have left the country yet and it has been three days. (post promises 2-4 days international express delivery)

I'm fucking losing it.... 😱😱

    Depending on the importance of those documents. In finance companies fly people with those documents across the world.

    @YourMVP but.. why not just PGP encrypt and sign it? It's so much easier, faster and is - with current hardware, even if combined - practically unbreakable. Whereas the agent going from point A to B with the sensitive document has to be ultimately trusted, and customs need to be trusted to follow the laws regarding state secrets (i.e. regardless of what's inside, it should not be scanned, agent is legally immune etc). Cryptographic functions such as PGP solve all of these issues.

    Never mind a PGP flaw was recently found :)

    As was stated before, barring some classified reason, the only thing likey requiring the physical mail is some old legacy system still in place.

    @bhouston as far as I can tell, it's mostly an issue with how email clients implemented the standard, rather than PGP itself.
    But feel free to feast on this one 🙂 it's a message that's been signed and encrypted to my own key.
