Installing an Encryption Key in Data Sync

The below tutorial will cover how to install an encryption key in Data Sync.

The encryption settings can be found from the main toolbar under Tools > Encryption Keys.

Add Encryption

Create a New Encryption

Select Encryption Keys from the tool menu to open the encryption key window. Here you will be able to view any encryption keys you add. However as we do not have any set up lets click Add Key.

Encryption Keys

Now we can generate a new certificate and an encryption key by clicking on the corresponding buttons.

Add an Encryption Key

NB: You must make a note of your encryption key. If you loose your encryption key you will be unable to use the credentials stored within your Data Sync project files.

You will also need to add this key on each machine that uses the encrypted project files.

Once you have generated a certificate and an encryption key you need to click Install Key to define your machine to use that encryption key.

Install Key

Make sure you have made a note of your encryption key and then click Close to close the window.

We can now view our newly created encryption in the Encryption Key window. You can manage all of your stored encryption keys for Data Sync from here.
