Symptom

Environment

Successfactors Integration Center

Cause

Need to Encrypt outbound files to secure communication of file outside integration center

Resolution

i.                  Prerequisite(s) :

  • Software for generating a Key Pair (Private and Public Key) to be used for encryption and decryption

Private Key - Used to decrypt output encrypted files via customer software of choice and/or system
Public Key - Used to encrypt output file

  • Software for Decrypting files where the generated private key will be used.
  • SFTP Credentials

ii.                 Procedure

1. Generate a Key Pair - Private and Public Key

The customer would be the one to choose platform to be used for generating their own key pair and decrypting their messages.

2. Export, secure and safely keep the Key Pair.

(Note : On your PGP Key software of choice, ensure to take note of the Key Alias (this file contains the private key which will in turn decrypt the file which the public key has encrypted)

2. Import the public key in Integration Center

Go To Integration Center -> Security Center -> PGP File Encryption Keys -> Import a Key
