Type:

Tip

Summary:

Use the utility and procedure described below to email sensitive files to NetLib Security Support.

Additional Information:

We have provided a utility to allow you to email sensitive files to NetLib Security Support. The utility will encrypt a file with a Public Key. Upon receipt we will decrypt with the associated Private Key.

  • If more than one file needs to be sent, compress all files in a ZIP file
  • Download PrivateSend.exe
  • Run utility
  • Select file that needs to be emailed and select Encrypt.
  • It will encrypt the file and place it on the Desktop with the same name but with extension “CTX”. For example, if you encrypt private.zip it will place private.zip.ctx on the Desktop.
  • Attach the CTX file (a text file) to an email. Note that if the CTX file is very large you can compress it into a ZIP file before sending.
