Updated on August 26, 2022

Create a safe and secure connection between Pega Process Fabric Hub and your remote application by updating the Pega Process Fabric Hub keystore that Pega Process Fabric Hub uses to communicate with remote applications.

A keystore is a file that contains keys and certificates that you use for encryption, authentication, and serving content over HTTPS. You source a keystore from a data page, a URL, a keystore management service, or an external file. The Pega Process Fabric Hub includes a default keystore that expires, so you need to update the keystore by uploading a file. Pega Process Fabric Hub supports the following keystore types:

  • JKS
  • JWK
  • PKCS12
  • KEYTAB
  • KEY
Note: Updating the default PPFKP keystore Pega Process Fabric Hub is mandatory for the correct communication between Pega Process Fabric Hub and your remote application, because the default keystore might be expired.Note: If your business scenario requires a keystore location other than an uploaded file, you need to delete the default PPFKP keystore and create a new keystore with the PPFKP name. For more information, see Creating a keystore for application data encryption.
