Set the clear text and IV properties

Set the clear text and IV (initialization vector) properties during the initial installation. Make sure that these properties are the same for all proxies.

  1. Change to the <installation directory>/conf/ directory.
  2. Open the edgeencryption.properties file.
  3. Replace the default values for these proxy properties with values that are unique for your installation.
    Table 1. General encryption properties
    Property Description
    edgeencryption.customer.assigned.known.cleartext Clear text to let the instance verify that all proxies are using the same keys. At start up, the proxy encrypts the clear text and sends the encrypted text to the instance. The instance does not know the clear text, nor are keys sent to the instance. This property must be the same for all proxies.
    edgeencryption.encrypter.static.iv The static IV (initialization vector) to be used in equality preserving and order preserving encryption. This property must be the same for all proxies, and it must be exactly 16 bytes (e.g. 16 ASCII characters.)
  4. Save and close the edgeencryption.properties file.
