  • What is the difference between a ConfigOS License Key and an Encryption Key?

    This is our number one support question from our ConfigOS customers.

    Software License Keys –

    SteelCloud provides every customer with two unique software license keys (Foundry and Command Center) necessary to activate your ConfigOS software. Both License Keys have a “.lic” file extension.
    • The Foundry License key is used to activate the ConfigOS Foundry software during the installation process.
    • The Command Center License key is used to activate Command Center software during the installation process.
    • Store the License Keys in a safe place because you will need them for reinstallation and expansion of your environment. If License Keys are misplaced, SteelCloud can send you replacement copies.

    Encryption Keys –

    The ConfigOS Foundry creates two encryption keys when it is first installed. Both the “Foundry” Key and a “Client” Key have a “.key” file extension.
    • You must install the ConfigOS Foundry to generate the Foundry and Client Keys
    • The Client Key is a prerequisite for the installation of ConfigOS Command Center.
    • The Foundry Key is used if you license multiple Foundries that you want to share the same encryption key create content for the same instance of Command Center.
    • Protect these keys because you will need them for reinstallation and expansion of your environment. These keys cannot be regenerated if misplaced.
