1. Download gpg (gpg4win-2.2.6.exe) from gpg4win.org/download.html and install it
2. Create a text password file with the correct password
3. Create a file that has a message to encrypt:
4. Create a batch or script file that has the following line:

gpg2.exe --symmetric --status-fd --batch --yes --passphrase-file <PATH>\<PASSWORD FILE> --output <PATH>\<OUTPUTFILE> <PATH>\<FILE TO ENCRYPT>

5. For linux:

gpg --symmetric --status-fd --batch --yes --passphrase-file <PATH>/<PASSWORD FILE> --output <PATH>/<OUTPUTFILE> <PATH>/<FILE TO ENCRYPT>

6. Test it in the command line by running the Script file created (the output file will be created and if opened with an editor encrypted text will be seen.)

7. After testing that the script works fine, it is time to call it from OAG using Execute Process filter.
