Can SAS work with PGP encrypted files

Hi,

 

I have a requirement where i am a getting a PGP encrypted file from a server. Is there a way in which i can import file data directly into a SAS library using SAS Enterprise guide. I need to do the decryption also within the SAS code preferably using import porcedure or using infile. Is this possible?

Regards,

Naveen

Re: Can SAS work with PGP encrypted files

Hi,

I would suggest you speak to your IT group.  This is a transmission issue, i.e. the encryption is on the sending and recieving a file, so you would need some software to devrypt the package on your end.  This should be taken care of by your IT group.  As far as I am aware there is no method of opening such a file in SAS directly, you would need third party software to do it.
