GnuPG keys use the public key approach for 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:

  1. Enter your information in the Create a New Key text boxes.



    Use a secure password. A secure password is not a dictionary word, and it contains uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.



    Use an appropriate expiration date for your key. The system defaults to one year (1y).

  2. Select the key size from the Key Size menu.
  3. Click Generate Key.

Import a key

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

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