This article details how to backup the Organization Key for your PGP Universal Server. The Organization Key is used to sign all user keys the PGP Universal Server creates and to encrypt server backups.
As all backups are encrypted with the your Organization Key, it is extremely important to back up your Organization Key. If you lose your Organization Key and have not backed it up, you cannot restore from backups encrypted to the Organization Key.
Each PGP Universal Server is pre-configured with a unique Organization Key generated by the Setup Assistant. If you would like to use different settings for this key, you can regenerate the key with the settings you prefer. This should only be done prior to live deployment of the server or creation of user keys by the server.
The Organization Key automatically renews itself one day before its expiration date. It renews with all the same settings.
The Organization Key can be backed up during the initial installation of the server or by exporting the key from the PGP Universal Server interface.
