PGP

PGP Overview

 

PGP, which stands for Pretty Good Privacy, is a method of encryption you can apply to scripts that run on your web site along with the e-mail you send through it.

 

PGP is software that you buy over the counter or on the web.  Using this software, you generate your own PGP encryption “key”.  You must do this before you can make use of the PGP option in the Control Panel.

 

The PGP option in the Control Panel performs two functions:

·         It provides you with instructions for using PGP on the web server on which your site resides, AND

·         It allows you to add or delete your PGP key from that server.

 

 

How To Use the PGP Option:

 

1.             From the Control Panel, select the PGP icon.  The PGPMail Public Key Management page displays.

 

 

            Any public keys that you install will be listed under the section PGPMail public key list on subsequent visits to this page.

 

2.             Follow the instructions on the page for adding your PGPMail public key.

 

To remove any existing PGPMail keys, scroll down to the bottom of the screen.  Select the desired key from the To remove a PGPMail public key section’s drop-down list, and then click on the Remove button.
