PGP Encrypt

PGP Encrypt encrypts files with a PGP public key. When a file is encrypted, a .pgp extension is appended to the filename. For example, when encrypting the file text1.txt, the encrypted file will be named text1.txt.pgp. PGP keys are maintained in PGP Key Maintenance.

Property List

PGP Key- The public key to encrypt with.

Delete Original Files- If this is selected, the original decrypted files will be deleted once encrypted.

Overwrite Existing- If there is already an encrypted file with the same name as the file being encrypted, it will be overwritten.

File Mask- The files in the work folder to be encrypted. This property accepts wild cards such as *.zip. Multiple paths can be created by separating them with a semicolon. For example: *.txt;*.csv.

Hash Algorithm- The algorithm used to generate the encryption hash. Auto will use SHA1 if it detects an older key and MD5 if it detects a newer key.
