Awardco and PGP Encryption Follow
If you desire to use enhanced security through PGP, this article will help you to understand how.
Awardco offers PGP encryption as an enhanced security option for clients that choose to pass user data via the Awardco SFTP server. PGP works on a Private/Public key encryption model with the public key being safe to share and the private key being guarded closely. The public key has the ability to encrypt files but cannot be used for decryption. Awardco using a single key pair and does not provide individual key pairs for any clients.
Awardco’s public key can be supplied on request to an Awardco representative, while the private key is held by a single individual at Awardco. This is ideal to maintain security and limits use of the PGP key to the intended purpose of passing user data over the SFTP server. The Awardco webhook is designed to automatically decrypt files when uploading to the platform to minimize key exposure.
