About PGP keys

A PGP® key might contain several cryptographic keys, including a parent key to verify signatures and one or more subkeys to encrypt messages. PGP keys are generated in pairs, with a public key and a private key.
A PGP public key binds the identity and the public cryptographic information of the PGP public key user. A PGP public key is required to verify and encrypt messages. PGP public keys are shared and are accessible by both message senders and recipients.
A PGP private key is required to sign and decrypt messages. Private key information is never publicly available.
You can generate a PGP key using the PGP Universal™ Server or PGP Desktop client. If you generate the PGP key using the PGP Universal Server, the PGP Universal Server signs the key to verify that the key is trusted.
A PGP key might also contain an X.509 certificate, which is used to verify and encrypt Secure Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME) messages. If you use the PGP Universal Server and you have installed the S/MIME Support Package for BlackBerry devices, you can use these certificates to send and receive S/MIME messages through the PGP Universal Server. Certificates that you obtain from PGP keys are stored in the key store and appear in the Certificates screen.
