Depending on whether you are creating a Personal Key for a user who does not
have an active Personal Key yet, or for a user who does, the Assign
new key dialog shows different check boxes. Select the check box
displayed, to define the newly created key as a Personal Key:
- Personal Key: This check box is displayed for
users who do not have an active Personal Key yet.
- Replace active Personal Key: This checkbox is
displayed for users who already have an active Personal Key.
The Personal Key is created for the selected user. In the Key
tab, the key is shown as the Active Personal Key for the user.
For a user who already had an active Personal Key before, the existing key is demoted
and the user receives the new one. The demoted Personal Key remains in the user's key
ring. The active Personal Key cannot be assigned to other users.
