Exporting public and private keys

Top  Previous  Next

Using MFT Server Manager you can export an existing public PGP key.  A typical scenario in which you would export a PGP public key would be the case where you want to distribute your public key to individuals/organizations who will then use your public key for encrypting documents that they then send to you for decryption.


To export a PGP public key, click your desired Keys module (See Key management overview) in MFT Server Manager.  After that, select the PGP Keys tab, select the key alias you wish to export, then click the Export > Secret key or Export > Public key button. The Export PGP Key dialog will be displayed.
