An ECC PGP key uses Elliptic-Curve Cryptography to create the key. PGP Command Line can create ECC PGP keys.
When you use Encryption Management Server to import an ECC PGP key, the key cannot be imported.
The following message is displayed in Encryption Management Server:
None of the desktop users could be imported. Please check the Administration log for details.
The Administration log shows a warning like this:
Not importing user "first.last <[email protected]>" (KeyID: 0x910992C7) because keys smaller than 1024 bits are not supported
Encryption Desktop can import ECC PGP keys generated by PGP Command Line. Users with Encryption Desktop can therefore import ECC PGP keys into their local keyring.
