In order to enhance security on certain documents, they can be delivered encrypted by a key that is specific to the person downloading the document.

Any file name associated with a document that ends in asdf.pdf (such as 2015_affiliate_ic_asdf.pdf) will be encrypted using a key that is associated with the person downloading the file.

The primary use of this feature is for delivering regional and affiliate instant challenge material to ADs and RDs.

The IC Documents pane contain controls that will:

  • create keys for ADs and RDs that are used to encrypt and decrypt file
  • email these keys to either all ADs or RDs or ADs and RDs in a specific affiliate

An AD or RD's key is specific to a program year.  You can use this pane to email keys for documents that have not yet been created.
