PGP Encrypt (Preview)

Description

This action is in preview mode. Functionality might change in the final version.

The Encrypt action allows a Flow to perform a PGP encryption on a string of plaintext. There is also the option to add a signature for additional authentication.

PGP Encrypt basic configuration

Usage

The Encrypt action converts plaintext to ciphertext, always encasing it in an ASCII armor so it can be sent through standard messaging (e.g., email). This makes it possible to send data securely to third-party services.

  1. Insert plaintext data inside file content (you can also insert data referring to a previous step by clicking the add [+] button)
  2. Insert a public PGP key of choice (received from a third party service or one that you have generated)
  3. Select the cipher algorithm of choice (CAST5 or BLOWFISH)
  4. (Optional) Select the Use session key checkbox if you want to generate an additional encryption layer

Signature (optional)

The signature authenticates the user.

PGP Encrypt signature

  1. Select one of the provided hash algorithms (MD2, MD5, RIPE-MD/160, SHA-1, SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, SHA-512)
  2. Insert a matching signature private key and public key
  3. (Optional) If the signature private key is protected, you must provide the passphrase
