Add a GnuPG Key

GnuPG keys use the “public key approach” to encryption. Messages are sent once they have been encrypted by a public key. The messages can only be decrypted by a private key, held by the intended recipient.

Add a Key

To add a GnuPG key:

  1. Fill in the fields below the Create a New Key heading.
  2. Click Generate Key.

Make sure to use an appropriate expiration date. The expiration date is defined in years and describes when the key will no longer work; 1 year is the default.

Remember: Use a secure password. A secure password is one that is not a dictionary word and contains upper- and lower-case letters, numbers, and symbols.

Import a GnuPG Key

An existing key can be imported using the Import Key button.

To import a GnuPG key:

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

The key will automatically be installed onto your web server.

Delete or View a GnuPG Key

Once a key-set has been added to the server, it can be deleted or viewed for copy from the main GnuPG page under the Public Keys and Private Keys heading.
