UITS is retiring PGP. PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) encryption software was implemented at IU in Spring of 2009 to make it possible for students, faculty, and staff to encrypt disk drives on their devices as a means of better protecting themselves and the university in the event of device loss or theft. At that time, many operating systems did not support native whole disk encryption and PGP was a viable alternative. As all modern operating systems support native whole disk encryption, PGP is no longer needed.
Please check the linked impact list to confirm if you support current or past users of PGP encryption software.
IT Community Partnerships is hosting an impact spreadsheet  that lists enrolled devices by department identified in the PGP console (Dept. column) and by year last seen (Last Seen column indicating year of last check-in). Each line in the spreadsheet tentatively identifies owners of the systems (Owners column). The spreadsheet also includes information on system name, client IP, status (Status column indicating level of encryption), and additional information.
The Excel spreadsheet contains two tabs that categorize computers by the year of last check-in to the PGP console (year last seen): Year_2010_to_2015 and Year_2016_to_2020.
UITS Leveraged Services is asking identified departments/owners to do the following for computers listed in the Year_2010_to_2015 tab by December 31, 2020 and for computers listed in the Year_2016_to_2020 tab by March 31, 2021:
- Remove PGP from any install images and/or new installs. (new enrollments are disabled)
- Locate listed computers or confirm that the computers no longer exist (note the “Last Seen” column in the lists).
- If computers exist, unencrypt encrypted computers, disks, and locations.
- Uninstall PGP agents from all of your devices.
- Re-encrypt devices using BitLocker or FileVault.
If your machines are beyond lifecycle replacement, we recommend you replace these machines.
Thank you so much for helping us retire PGP. If you have any questions concerning the steps, please contact email@example.com.
