This article includes a technical document detailing guidelines when using an ADK. An additional decryption key (ADK) is a key generally used by security officers of an organization to decrypt messages that have been sent to or from employees within the organization.



Messages encrypted by a key with an ADK are encrypted to the public key of the recipient and to the ADK, which means the holder of the ADK can also decrypt the message.
