Configure the default encryption key properties

The encryption key default properties specify the keys that are to be used for the different encryption types. All AES 128 encryption types use the encryption key specified by the edgeencryption.encrypter.default.key128 property. All AES 256 encryption types use the encryption key specified by the edgeencryption.encrypter.default.key256 property.

  1. Change to the <installation directory>/conf/ directory.
  2. Open the edgeencryption.properties file.
  3. Enter the encryption key default assignments.
    Table 1. Properties for the encryption keys being used
    Property Description
    edgeencryption.encrypter.default.key128 Specifies the name of the current AES 128 key. An AES 128 key must be available even if it is not used. Must be the same for all proxies.
    edgeencryption.encrypter.default.key256 Specifies the name of the current AES 256 key. Must be the same for all proxies.
    Note: If you do not plan to use AES 256 encryption, remove this property from the configuration file.
  4. Save and close the edgeencryption.properties file.
