Allow a SFG Community to allow using more than one PGP key for decryption.

Allow a SFG community to allow partners to use the existing key or the new key to encrypt their data with so that SFG then can use either PGP key for decryption - this will allow partners to make changes in a gradual way , when we generate new PGP keys to replace existing key before they expire.

How will this idea be used?

This will allow partners to make changes in a gradual way , when we generate new PGP keys to replace existing key before they expire. Otherwise there is a very narrow window for our partners to implement their change before delivering the encrypted data which leads to failures.

    Yes this is for staging new PGP Keys ahead of cut over date and allowing the old PGP key to be used/recognized till then as well to allow gradual transition to new PGP key. That is why we wan to have Community allow one of many PGP keys (currently only one possible).

    Looking for confirmation that this is a use case for staging certificates, and cut-over on a certain date to support a transition?

    Or is this a use case for sub-keys?
