PGP package

Use the PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) package to automatically encrypt and decrypt files for security.

The PGP package supports two types of encryption, symmetric (single key) and asymmetric (pair of keys) :

  • PGP symmetric : Requires a single key to encrypt and decrypt files.
  • PGP asymmetric: Requires PGP public and private key to encrypt and decrypt files.
    Note: The system outputs an error when the proper file extension is not present in the path.
    • Public key: File name specified for Public Key is not valid.
    • Private key: File name specified for Private Key is not valid.
