This article describes how to store copies of external user keys on the PGP Universal Server.
There are a number of options on the PGP Universal Server that you can use for management of external user PGP keys.
External users can run PGP Universal Satellite or PGP Desktop, or they can interact with the PGP Universal Server through PGP Universal Web Messenger.
Importing external users allows your internal users to easily send encrypted messages to them, because external users public keys are stored locally. This is similar to adding external domains and directories to the PGP Universal Server, except that you are adding information about specific individuals rather than domains. PGP Universal Server stores the key material for external users, rather than having to look for it on an external keyserver directory.
To add an External User key
The external user key appears on the list of available External Users.
The PGP Verified Directory gives you the option of hosting a Web-accessible keyserver for the public keys of your internal or external users. By enabling the Verified Directory feature on the PGP Universal Server you can allow external users to upload their keys to your server.
The PGP Verified Directory uses next-generation keyserver technology that lets users manage their own keys, including submitting and removing them.
If you know of a keyserver or directory outside your own network that can contain keys belonging to people receiving mail from inside your network, you can add that keyserver to the list of searchable keyservers. The PGP Universal Server searches the specified keyserver for recipient keys or certificates, if mail policy rules containing that keyserver apply to the message being sent.
