Description: Enhanced File Transfer Server OpenPGP Module - License - 1 server - ESD - Win - English - OpenPGP
Mfr Part #: GSEFT-N-PGP-DVEFT Server employs industry-standard OpenPGP (based on the open source implementation of Pretty Good Privacy) technology to safeguard data at rest. In contrast to symmetric encryption technologies that rely on a single password or shared secret for encryption and decryption, OpenPGP uses a public/private key pair and a password.
In EFT Server, the OpenPGP data encryption (or decryption) process is directed by Event Rules that specify how data files are treated in a particular context. OpenPGP uses a public key and a private key to encrypt data and maintain security. These two components are considered a key pair and are associated with a particular site. The key pair is stored on the OpenPGP Key Ring, which is the management tool for public keys and key pairs. The OpenPGP Key Ring contains all key information and allows import, export, creation, and deletion of keys.
New key pairs are created using the OpenPGP Key Generation wizard. The wizard prompts you for key parameters and creation of a passphrase. Once the new key pair is generated, you must determine if the new key pair will be the default for the entire Site. Allowing assignment of a default key pair will automatically select this key when configuring an Event Rule using OpenPGP encryption.
