19.16 VGS will implement all security features (secure

authentification, integrity, privacy, and non-

repudiation) using a file-based approach via a

commercially available implementation of PGP 2.6 or

greater (or compatible with PGP 2.6). VGS will implement

basic authentification. Encryption keys will be self-

certified and the means of exchange will be specified in

the Trading Partner Agreement. Encryption keys will have

a limited lifetime whose duration is determined by the

key's owner. A key's end of life is expressed in the

expiration date field contained in each public key. A

lifetime of one year or less is recommended.
