Guidance for generating asymmetric key pair

Guidance for generating asymmetric key pair

You will need to provide a public key when registering your service. This is required for the authentication mechanism on the token endpoint. The steps below explain how to generate that public key and corresponding private key.

Full details can be found here.

Generate private_key.pem

openssl genpkey -algorithm RSA -out private_key.pem -pkeyopt rsa_keygen_bits:2048

Generate corresponding public_key.pem

openssl rsa -pubout -in private_key.pem -out public_key.pem

You should now have your key pair. Only send the contents of the public_key.pem file when requesting access to a new environment.
