Advice for Working with an Encrypted One Identity Manager Database

Advice for Working with an Encrypted One Identity Manager Database

If you encrypt a One Identity Manager database, you must declare the database key to the One Identity Manager Service.

CAUTION: If the One Identity Manager Service finds a private key on start up, it places it in the key container and deletes the file from the hard drive. So save the private key at another location in addition to the service install directory!

To declare the database key

  • Declare the following information in the One Identity Manager Service configuration file. Use Job Server Editor in Designer or the program "Job Service Configuration" to edit the configuration file.
    Table 29: Configuration of One Identity Manager Service for Encryption
    Configuration Module Parameter Meaning

    JobServiceDestination

    File with private key (PrivateKey)

    Enter the file with the encryption information. The default file is private.key.

    JobServiceDestination

    Encryption scheme (EncryptionScheme)

    Specify the encryption scheme you want to use

  • Save the key file created in the service’s install directory.
  • Open the services utility and restart the service "One Identity Manager Service".

NOTE: The file with the private key must exist in the server's installation directory on all servers with an active One Identity Manager Service.

NOTE: If you change the One Identity Manager Service user account, you must save the key file in the service’s install directory again.
