Implementing file encryption/decryption at adapter level


Dear Experts,

I require some help regarding a business scenario in which we are looking to transfer encrypted files to our business partner and decrypt what is received by us in exchange.

We have already purchased a PFX certificate from one of the CAs and we are looking to use this to sign the encrypted files.

Our requirement is as follows:

We would like to encrypt/decrypt the files to be sent at the Adapter level. We are aware that a certain PGPModule exists in PI which could facilitate this. However, PGP is not supported as per the Indian IT Act. This is posing a problem for us as our partners are also unwilling to embrace this PGP module due to this lack of support.

Could somebody please suggest if there is an alternative to the PGPModule, or if some other method can be followed to achieve encryption/decryption at the Adapter level. Kindly keep in mind that it should be compatible with the Indian IT Act, which is causing the main problem for us.

We would be much obliged if anybody could provide us some information regarding this topic.
