IBM Sterling Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

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.

What is your industry? Automotive
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?
