Add a GnuPG Key
For cPanel version 11.28
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:
- Fill in the fields below the Create a New Key heading.
- Select the key size from the Key Size drop-down menu.
- 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.
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
To import a GnuPG key:
- Copy and paste the key into the available text box.
- Click Import.
The key will automatically be installed onto your web server.
Delete or View a GnuPG Key
Once you have added a key-set to the server, you can delete it or view it from the main GnuPG Keys
page, under the Public Keys
and Private Keys
