    If PGP offer a Java API (I'm sure that either they, or the GNU equivilent will have) then it's a relatively easy job to create a file adapter module yourself (There's samples and guides around). I assume you just want to decrypt a file as it's read by the file adapter then pass the contents straight through to the pipeline?

    You'll need to evaluate whether it's an issue that the plaintext will be quite visible in the pipeline (as well as perhaps at an OS level in dumps/swap/etc), so if something's has a strong encryption requirement like this then you may want to assess the security impact there first.

    Also with PGP you may wish to check that any "enterprise" se of a licence of it's product is catered for, and for that reason may wish to look at the GNU alternative.

    Cheers,

    James Legg.

      Not done a pgp module before, but I have done manipulation of other wierd and wonderful file formats. I'll have a look and let you know how hard I think it would be, but I dont have free time to do this or support it.

      If you can find someone with Java skills you'd be looking at about 2 days effort to code with basic unit testing, less if they've done this kind of thing before and more if you want bells and whistles, documentation and support through your testing cycles. Perhaps a 1 month XI contractor would be a good way to go?

      Where/how are your keyrings stored?

      Are the previous security impacts I mentioned an issue?

      Cheers,

      James.

      With http://www.cryptography.ch I think you may get issues with the deployment of the library though as it has compiled OS specific binaries. You might have to deploy that manually if you went down that route.

      Perhaps better than above is to do something like /message/2073686#2073686 [original link is broken]

      Though still not a good solution as spawning external processes is horrible.

      The best solution so far looks like Cryptix, and it's OpenPGP implementation, however that is OpenPGP not PGP, so is that acceptible? It would have the bonus of allowing easy implementation of any other crypto's that the library support 😊

      Cheers

      James.

    http://www.bouncycastle.org also has an OpenPGP implementation. I have never worked it into an adapter module though.

      Jeff,

      I have one developed, tested and for sale, it's called "SB2B for SAP XI"

      I guess we probably got already in touch via email, but I'm not sure. Should that not be the case, you can reach via email at "a dot guarneri at talentlab dot biz"

      Regards,

      Alex

      Jenni,

      The module I have developed works with any adapter running on the J2EE side, JMS included. It is quite cheap 😊

      You can reach me at the above said address.

      Cheers,

      Alex

    Hi,

    We've developed a PGP for SAP NW module. Take a look at http://www.aedaptive.com.
