Encrypted Contact

Encrypted Contact offers your website visitors a tool to protect their messages before they are sent to the website's owner via email.

  1. Have your website https-ready, make sure your visitors can reach your site via https://your-site.com.

  2. Create a safe place for your encryption key by making the directory /home/gpg. Change the ownership to the web server user and remove all permissions except for the owner.

    as root run the following commands:

    mkdir /home/gpg

    chown apache /home/gpg (you may replace apache with your web server user)

    chmod 700 /home/gpg

  3. Upload the plugin zip-file encrypted-contact.tgz to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory and extract the plugin files. The files will be stored in a separate directory encrypted-contact.

  4. Log into your admin panel and activate the new plugin through the plugins menu.

  5. Place the contact form in some place like the sidebar through the widgets menu, where the new widget Encrypted Contact will show up.

  6. Log into your admin panel and create a new key pair for you via the Key Management button. Alternatively you can upload an existing private key via the Key Management tool.

  7. Decide whether or not you will store the messages (encrypted or not) on the server. Set the Archive Messages select box to yes. A subdirectory messages will be created automatically inside the safe place for your encryption keys and copies of all messages will be archived here before the are sent out via email. You can read these messages and even decrypt them online using the admin panel.
