Configuring a keystore for a master key from a custom source

Suggest edit Updated on June 30, 2021

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 stored temporarily, for example, cached requestor IDs, or data that is persisted, such as data in a database.

Before you begin: You must create a keystore instance for your keystore file. For more information, see Creating a keystore for application data encryption.
  1. Open a keystore from the navigation pane 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. For the keystore to function properly, 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.
