PKI Services Manager Public and Private Key

PKI Services Manager client applications use public key authentication when connecting to PKI Services Manager to ensure the identity of the server. A public/private key pair is created automatically during PKI Services Manager initialization. Before a PKI Services Manager client application can connect to PKI Services Manager, it needs access to a copy of the PKI Services Manager public key.

The default key names are:

  • Private key: pki_key
  • Public key:

The default key location is:

  • Windows: data folder\config\
  • UNIX: /opt/attachmate/pkid/config/

You can modify the key name or location. To do this from the console, go to General > Private key location. In the pki_config file, use the KeyFilePath keyword.
