Creating a data page for a master key from a custom source

Suggest edit Updated on June 30, 2021

Encrypt system data using an encryption key that is sourced from a Custom Key management service (KMS) that is accessed from a data page. To configure a keystore for a master key by using a data page reference, create the data page, and then use the data page to retrieve a master key from an external source.

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. On the Main tab of the keystore, next to the Source data page field, click the Add icon.
  2. Enter the Label, Identifier, and Apply to class for the data page, and then click Create and open.
  3. In the Structure list, select Page.
  4. In the Object type field, enter Data-Admin-Security-Keystore.
  5. In the Mode list, select Read-Only.
  6. In the Scope list, select Node.
  7. In the Data sources section, in the Source list, select Activity.
  8. If a Java code step that creates and populates the keystore data page does not exist, create an activity to do so. For more information, see Creating a data page activity for a master key from a custom source.
  9. In the Activity name field, enter the name of the activity that creates and populates the keystore data page.
  10. Click Parameters.
  11. Select the Pass current parameter page check box, and then click Submit.
  12. Click Save.
