MORE PGP FILE ENCRYPTION INFORMATION
TALX requires using file-based encryption when transmitting over the
The encryption method is Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) version 6.5 or
by PGP Corporation (http://www.pgp.com/index.html
<http://www.pgp.com/index.html> ). This software is
downward compatible to all UNIX and Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista versions.
PGP works by using a PUBLIC key and a PRIVATE key. The transmitter of
encrypts the transmission file with the receiver's public key. The only
this file can be unencrypted is when the right private key (which is
security control by the TALX Dataload team) is then matched with the
encrypted file and the correct pass phrase is entered.
The key "talxcorp01312010Public.asc" is for PGP versions 6.5 and
key uses Diffie-Hellman/Digital Signal Standard encryption, with a 2048
Diffie-Hellman key size. This new public key will expire on January 31,
A new version of this key will be available for download within a month
of that date.
Along with encryption, PGP software also compresses the file to around
percent of the original size, greatly reducing transfer times.
The implementation procedure is as follows:
1. Client downloads the TALX public key from
http://www.talx.com/pgp <http://www.talx.com/pgp> ,
(The key is the same at each URL) and save the key to a local drive by
clicking on the hyperlink on the website and selecting "Save Target As."
2. Client imports public key with PGP software onto their PGP software
* Open PGP keys
* Select Keys
* Select Import Key and find where you saved the TALX Public Key
* Verify and sign key if required in your configuration
3. Client prepares file for transmission.
4. Client encrypts file with our public key using PGP software
* Right click on your file (in Windows Explorer)
* Select PGP, then select encrypt
* Double click on the TALX Public Key
(*The encrypted file will be built in the same location as the original
5. Client transmits file to TALX. When transmitting via FTP you MUST
use BINARY transmission mode- as opposed to ASCII, which may be the
6. TALX decrypts the file using our private key and our password
