Configuring a keystore for a master key from a custom source

Version:

You can configure a keystore for a master encryption key that is stored in an external source, such as a key management service. Use keystores to encrypt, authenticate, and serve content over HTTPS. Master keys can encrypt data that is temporarily stored, for example, cached requestor IDs, or data that is persisted, such as data in a database.

You must complete the following task before you can configure a keystore: Creating a keystore for application data encryption
  1. Open a keystore from the navigation panel by clicking Records Security Keystore and selecting a keystore for a master key from a custom source from the instance list.

  2. In the Keystore location field, select Source master key from other KMS using a data page.

  3. Creating a data page activity for a master key from a custom source.

  4. In the Source data page field, enter or select the data page that you created in step 3.

  5. Click Save.

    A keystore is a file that contains keys and certificates that you use for encryption, authentication, and serving content over HTTPS. In Pega Platform, you create a keystore data instance that points to a keystore file.
