Sending emails to users outside the Trustera ecosystem (working with Public Keys)

Importing a Public PGP Key

This describes how to configure Trustera Security to send a secure email to an existing (non-Trustera) PGP user. In this scenario, you would import the individual’s Public Key (in ASCII ARMOR format) in the “Keys” section of your Trustera account after logging in from the Trustera web site http://www.trustera.io/, or managing your account directly at my-account.trustera.io. To import a key, select “Keys” -> “Public Keys” and then the upload icon on the upper right. Choose the Public Key File you would like to import, and then select “Import”.

You can now send the recipient encrypted emails, but Trustera specific features such as DRM are not supported. For more information on interacting with PGP users outside the Trustera ecosystem see the Trustera Security User Manual here (under the section “Using non-Trustera Generated PGP Keys”).

Note: Trustera Security will first try and find a native Trustera Public Key for any recipients, and then search your uploaded Public Keys. If a Trustera Public Key is found, we will use the Trustera TSD PGP format for encryption, if a non-Trustera Public Key is found, we will use RFC PGP format for encryption. If multiple recipients are present some with native Trustera Public Keys and some with non-Trustera Public Keys the email will be sent with RFC PGP formatted encryption for all recipients. In the latter case, this may limit the features that are available for the communications (DRM will not be available, for example).
