Generating New RSA Keys

About this task

You can generate new RSA keys if the current keys are compromised. Any existing data will be re-encrypted as part of the key generation process.

To generate new RSA keys:


  1. On your first SOTI XSight server, open the SOTI XSight Administration Utility.
  2. Select Keys from the menu on the left.
  3. Optional: Turn on the Force Generate option if you want to force key generation even if SOTI XSight can't decrypt existing data using old keys.
    Important: Enabling this setting may lead to data loss.
  4. Click Generate Keys to start the key generation process.
    Existing data is decrypted and then re-encrypted as part of the process.
  5. Confirm that you'd like to proceed with key generation.


Your new keys are generated.

What to do next

Export the new keys to your other SOTI XSight servers. Read Securing Load Balanced Servers for instructions.
