Benefits of PGP
When sending or receiving files to or from Handelsbanken, PGP can be added as file encryption. The main functionality and benefits of using PGP are:
- Change protection
- Non repudiation
To be able to use PGP with Handelsbanken, you are required to sign a PGP agreement. Please contact your local branch office to receive the necessary documents.
Exchange of PGP keys
You will also need to exchange public PGP keys with Handelsbanken. Depending on which services you need, we require both a public key on a corporate level and public keys on an individual level.
Change of current key
Handelsbanken will make the next key available on this webpage well in advance of the current key expiration date. We will also announce the exact date here when Handelsbanken will start using the new key for outbound traffic from the bank to you. Make sure to add our new key to your key ring before this date in order to avoid any problems.
