Key Management - Manage Keys
When importing files with sensitive data, organizations prefer to encrypt the import file, and Cornerstone provides Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) for encryption.
The Manage Keys page enables administrators to create and download PGP keys that are used to encrypt their import files before using them in Edge Import. In addition, administrators can clearly view the expiry date of each PGP key.
To access the Manage Keys page, go to. Then, select the Key Management panel.

Create PGP Key
In addition to the CSOD Legacy PGP Key, organizations can have a maximum of two active keys per portal. For example, administrators may create a new key when the previous key is about to expire, or administrators may create multiple keys if they want to use separate PGP keys in various domains.
To create a new PGP key, select thebutton. A Create Key flyout opens. Enter a name for the key up to 30 characters and select the button. The expiry date is 180 days from the date the key is created.
The following considerations apply:

- PGP keys created here can only be used for importing files used for Edge Import manual loads and feeds and Bulk API.

To download a key, select thebutton for the appropriate key. All administrators who have access to Edge Import can download any PGP key.
