PGP UN Server 3 - Multiple 'Consumers', 1 shared key
I have just been tasked with implementing PGP UN Server 3.x for our organisation.
I've configured pretty much everything as it should be and that's all fine but now our requirement is to have 1 key shared between a department.
'Manufacturing' consists of 12 users who deal with 20 external parties using PGP keys.
Currently we are using the standalone PGP Desktop v9, thus each external party requires the key of all 20 'Manufacturing' users.
We would like to create a generic Manufacturing key to be shared between all 20 internal users whilst allowing them to still E-Mail out from their own addresses. Such as:
David.Davidson@manufac-corp.com -> Encrypted with generic 'Manufacturing' key -> Secure.firstname.lastname@example.org
Matthew.Matthews@manufac-corp.com -> Encrypted with generic 'Manufacturing' key -> Secure.email@example.com
Alongside this we would also like the external party keys to be centrally manageable by the internal user.
For instance if we bring on a 21st external party, firstname.lastname@example.org sends his key to David.Davidson@manufac-corp.com. David Davidson imports this key and signs it. Matthew Matthews should then be able to pick up that key from the UN Server.
Is this at all possible? If it made any sense.
Thanks for reading!
