PGP Encrypt (Preview)
This action is in preview mode. Functionality might change in the final version.
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.
- Insert plaintext data inside file content (you can also insert data referring to a previous step by clicking the add [+] button)
- Insert a public RSA/PGP key of choice (received from a third party service or one that you have generated)
- Select the cipher algorithm of choice (CAST5 or BLOWFISH)
- (Optional) Select the Use session key checkbox if you want to generate an additional encryption layer
Extension Kit supports both RSA and PGP keys. Please note that the key content has been shortened for documentation purposes.
- Example of Public RSA key:
-----BEGIN PUBLIC KEY----- j+TgseJangU6imik5mL0qYg9523FcukXfS9MH+qgisF1DotW1C9BADUKd0okqWUZ [...] -----END PUBLIC KEY-----
- Example of Public PGP key:
-----BEGIN PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK----- FkVQtn8eLXJJoTE0to22n5pCy/fet8k4wc7oxiiDm/XGpoe0SsO1wVBpr900662Y [...] -----END PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK-----
NOTE: The type of key being used is automatically determined by the system. User action is not required.
The signature authenticates the user.
- Select one of the provided hash algorithms (MD2, MD5, RIPE-MD/160, SHA-1, SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, SHA-512)
- Insert a matching signature private key and public key
- (Optional) If the signature private key is protected, you must provide the passphrase
