(Home >> Security >> GnuPG Keys)
GnuPG keys use the public key approach to encryption. Servers that use GnuPG keys encrypt outbound messages with a public key. Only the intended recipient, who has the private key, can decrypt the message.
Create a New Key
To add a GnuPG key, perform the following steps:
Fill in the text boxes below Create a New Key.
Use a secure password. A secure password is not a dictionary word and contains uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.
Use an appropriate expiration date for your key. One year is the default.
- Select the key size from the Key Size menu.
- Click Generate Key.
To import an existing GnuPG key, perform the following steps:
- Copy and paste the key into the available text box.
- Click Import.
The system will automatically install the key.
Delete or view keys
After you add a key set to the server, you can delete it or view it under the appropriate (Public or Private) heading.
