Creating a New Group with a Group Key

To create a new group with a group key

  1. Log in to the PGP Universal Server admin interface.
  2. On the Groups page, click Add Group. The Groups Settings: Add Group page appears.
  3. On the General subtab, type in a Group Name and Description.
  4. To apply a consumer policy to members of this group, select Apply Consumer Policy to members of this group, and choose a consumer policy from the drop-down menu.
  5. To add a group key to this group, click Generate to create a new group key or Import to import an existing keypair as the group key.

    When you click Generate, a new group key will be created using the current default settings for a group key.

    When you click Import, the Import Key page appears. Select a key file or paste a key block, enter the passphrase of the private key, then click Import.
