Overview

This interface allows you create, store, and manage GnuPG keys. GnuPG keys use the public key approach for encryption.

Programs that use GnuPG keys encrypt outbound messages with a public key. Only the intended recipient, who possesses the private key, can decrypt the message.

Create a New Key

To add a GnuPG key, perform the following steps:

  1. Enter your information in the Create a New Key text boxes.
  1. Select the key size, in bits, from the Key Size menu. The key size defaults to 2048.
  2. Click Generate Key.

After you create a new GnuPG key, you can add the key to other programs or interfaces that require GnuPG keys, for example, an email client.

Import a key

To import an existing GnuPG key, perform the following steps:

  1. Copy and paste the GnuPGkey into the available text box.
  2. Click Import.

The system will add the key to your server.

Delete or view keys

After you add a GnuPG key set to the server, you can delete it or view it in the Public Keys or Private Keys tables.

Delete a key

To delete a GnuPGkey, perform the following steps:

  1. Locate the key that you wish to delete in the Public Keys or Private Keys tables.
  2. Click Delete GnuPG Key for that key. A new interface will appear.
  3. Click Yes. A success or error message will appear.

View a key

To view a GnuPG key, perform the following steps:

  1. Locate the certificate that you wish to edit in the Certificates on Server table.
  2. Click View. A new interface will appear that displays the GnuPG key block.
  3. Click Go Back to return to the Encryption interface.
