GPG Encrypt and Sign error - no sender key

Postby melvin » Thu Feb 06, 2014 2:39 pm

User Support Request:
I have loaded two keys into key store but when creating profile for “encrypt and sign” based task I am getting below information, this is when setting sender identity: No identities found. Please create and import keys into keystore.

Encrypt and Sign requires your private key and recipients public to be in the keystore.
Encrypt and Sign signs with your private key and encrypts with recipients public key.
The error when setting sender identity implies that you do not have an acceptable private signing key in the keystore.
Your screenshot does not show the key type column, so cannot tell if you have a private key or not. Try creating a new DSA/EL gamal key pair if you do not have a private key.
