OpenPGP Tasks

Properties   Configuration Settings  

The OpenPGP Task provides OpenPGP signing and encryption functionality.

Remarks

The OpenPGP Task is used for sending and receiving OpenPGP signed and encrypted messages. The messages may be signed, encrypted, or both.

By default the OpenPGP Task will use an internal OpenPGP implementation. This implementation of OpenPGP does not require any additional dependencies and is completely managed. Alternatively the task may be configured to use an external implementation such as GnuPG. See PGPProviderType for details.

OpenPGP Encoder Task

The encoder takes raw messages as input, and generates a signed, encrypted, or signed and encrypted OpenPGP message as output. This task can be used when creating pipelines to create such messages.

The SignData and EncryptData properties tell the task which operations should be performed on the message. Set the respective property to true to enable the operation. If signing a message, you will need to specify the private key for signing in the Key property. If encrypting a message, you will need to specify the public key of the recipient in the RecipientKey property. Optionally use the PGPParams property to specify input parameters to the operation.

OpenPGP Decoder Task

The decoder takes OpenPGP signed, encrypted, or signed and encrypted messages as input, then verifies and/or decrypts the message. The resulting message will be the raw original message.

The incoming message will be decrypted using the private key in the Key property. Verification is performed automatically when the public key of the signer is specified in the SignerKey property. Optionally use the PGPParams property to specify input parameters to the operation.
