Configuring a keystore for a master key from a custom source

Updated on July 1, 2021

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.

Before you begin: 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 RecordsSecurityKeystore 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. Create a data page 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.
