  • Reading the master encryption key
    Posted: 11-30-2018, 10:20 AM

    Hello all.


    I am having a discussion with a security architect.


    I believe that if I set encryption with the built-in KMS, with No Access, the master key is stored only in the CV database in an encrypted format, and there should be no way for a user to ever be able to view, retrieve or export this key manually?


    Am I correct?

    Hi Guy,

    When set to No Access the commserve DB is the location which knows the key.

    BUT, support is able to provide you the key if the DB is lost.
    They have a procedure for this.
