Difference between PGP Key Server and PGP universal Server

Created: 09 Apr 2011 | 2 comments

Hi,

 I am new to PGP Desktop Email product. We would like to develop PGP destop email for our company so that our company users can send & receive encrypted email to other employee in our company.

 

 We have successfully installed and configured PGP desktop email in two systems wherein we can send encrypted email and decrypt it without any issues. The problem with this approach is that if user1@mycompany.com wants to send email to user2@mycompany.com, they need to get the user2@mycompany.com public key so that user1@mycompany.com can encrypt message before sending it to user2@mycompany.com id. This will be bothersome since we need to send PGP encrypted messages to many users. So collecting recipient public key each time will be bothersome and time consuming job.

  So i hard that there is a solution fo this problem for which we need to use PGP key server or PGP Universal Server. Could you please let me know the difference between PGP Key server and PGP universal server.

  Your help on the above requested information will be very much helpful to understand the basic funtionalities of PGP Desktop Email Encryption.

 

Regards

Papdheen M
