PGP encryption

PGP is a tool allowing e-mail encryption and signature.

  • Encrypting a message ensures the sender that only the recipients will be able to decrypt and thus read the message.
  • Signing a message ensures the identity of the sender to the recipients.

PGP is the abbreviation of Pretty Good Privacy.

Mailo Secure Cloud proposes a server-side PGP integration as a trusted third party.

The PGP integration in Mailo Secure Cloud has the following characteristics:

  • native webmail integration
  • sending and receiving PGP e-mail
  • management of the signature and the encryption of e-mails
  • operation independent of the client, allowing an equivalent usage on all devices
  • generation of private/public PGP key pairs
  • import/export of PGP keys generated on Mailo Secure Cloud or with other tools

As a trusted third party, Mailo Secure Cloud commits to ensure a maximal security to the users' PGP keys.

Users who wish to use PGP without a trusted third party need to install a mail software with cryptographic capabilities on each device used to access the encrypted e-mails.
