PGP encryption mechanism is implemented in H-Sphere trouble ticket system to encode and decode
secure parts of TT messages.
PGP encryption is implemented on the basis of the

Generating PGP Public Key and PGP Private Key
To generate a pair of PGP public and private keys, use any PGP encryption program. Or,
you may use the KeyPairGenerator Java tool integrated into H-Sphere:
-i "This is a main identification string"
-s "identification_string_for_ subkey"
Enabling PGP Encryption In Your Support Center
Set PGP Private Key and PGP Code Phrase in the
Settings/Tech Support menu
in the admin panel to be able to decode encrypted texts directly from
TT Administration Center.
Encrypting Texts With PGP Public Key
PGP Public Key should be made available to customers to encrypt their messages.
Information may be encrypted by means of the PGPEncrypter Java tool in H-Sphere:
-m "This is a message to encrypt"
-f "This is a file where encrypted phrase will be saved"
