I will be sending files to a company via ftp. One of the requirements they have is to use PGP encryption. I am new to PGP and encryption in general.
My understanding is that I will encrypt the file using pgp and they will decrypt the file with pgp when they receive it on their end. How do I create the key and then share that with them so they can decrypt the file? I've noticed in the documentation several references to the PGP Global Directory. Are the keys stored there and referenced by email address or some other means for sharing? I will also be receiving files from them that will have to be decrypted.
What PGP product will I need to accomplish encrypting of files? I will not be using it for email or any other purpose other than to encrypt/decrypt and ftp files from our server to theirs and vice-versa. I would like to automate this process, either through foxpro, which I use to create the files, or through DOS. I have signed up for the free trial of Desktop to try to learn more about PGP before the company purchases it.
Any advice/suggestions/references are greatly appreciated.
