Communication between devices. SSL uses a public key to encrypt data and private key to decrypt data. These keys (stored in “keyrings”) are unique to the device. This ensures that date encrypted with a device’s public key can only be decrypted by the corresponding private key.
On ProxySG appliances, the configuration-passwords-key SSL keyring is used to encrypt and decrypt the following passwords on the appliance:
Because every appliance has a different configuration-passwords-key, you will receive a decryption error if you try to restore an archive to another device.
To ensure that the archive can be transferred to another appliance, you must do one of the following:
1. Restore the original configuration-passwords-key keyring
2. Change the encrypted passwords to clear text so that they can be regenerated.
Note: If both methods be executed correctly and the restore still fails, the only option will be to use the unique configuration-passwords-key on the new SG-VA.
