File PGP Encryption for Inbound Data Types

You can encrypt data files with PGP encryption when sending them to Audience Manager.

IMPORTANT

PGP encryption includes file compression. When sending PGP encrypted inbound files make sure you don’t compress them using gzip (.gz).

PGP encrypted inbound files that are also compressed are invalid in Audience Manager.

Follow the steps outlined below to encrypt inbound data files.

  1. Download the Audience Manager public key.

  2. Import the public key to your trusted store.

    For example, if you use GPG, the command could be similar to the following:

    gpg --import adobe_pgp.pub

  3. Validate that the key has been imported correctly by running the following command:

    gpg --list-keys

    You should see a message similar to the following:

    pub   4096R/8496CE32 2013-11-01
    uid                  Adobe AudienceManager
    sub   4096R/E3F2A363 2013-11-01
    
  4. Encrypt the inbound data using the following command:

    gpg --recipient "Adobe AudienceManager" --cipher-algo AES --output $output.gpg --encrypt $inbound

    All encrypted data must use .pgp or .gpg as the file extension (e.g. ftp_dpm_100_123456789.sync.pgp or ftp_dpm_100_123456789.overwrite.gpg).

    NOTE

    Audience Manager supports only the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) data-encryption algorithm. Audience Manager supports any key size.
