Is it possible to implement PGP Encryption module in SAP ECC system, for encrypting outgoing files from  ECC, can we use this? Or Is possible only with PI?

You can implement it with external commands defined in SM69, then you can call these commands with FM SXPG_COMMAND_EXECUTE.

Feel free to ask for native support for this on this thread :
