Pretty Good Privacy (PGP)

In addition to using the S/MIME encryption method, the Bundesbank uses the Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) method to encrypt confidential e-mails. A single PGP key (with the exception of a few local installations) is used for the entire Bank. The key has a length of 2048 bits and is valid for a period of 10 years until 26 October 2020. Nearly all Bundesbank e-mail addresses can be reached using this key.
