Issue/Introduction

Does CA Top Secret support importing a PGP Key Pair certificate into the CA Top Secret Security File?

 

Environment

Release: 16.0
Component: Top Secret

Resolution

PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) is an encryption/decryption program that is widely used for protecting data transfers over the internet. It uses public/private key pairs for the encryption/decryption.

CA Top Secret can create a certificate with public/private key pairs and supports CERTDER/BASE64/PKCS12 x509 type certificate.

So, as long as the certificate is in one of the supported formats (CERTDER/BASE64/PKCS12), it can be imported and stored in the CA Top Secret Security File.

Please see the CA Top Secret Cookbook under the FORMAT keyword for a complete list of the support certificate formats.
