Client Authentication Key File Worksheet

The initial client authentication key file is created automatically during the installation; however, you can update your key at a later date. Use the information on this worksheet when you modify the key.

Parameter Default Value Value To Use
The host name on which a IBM® Connect:Direct® is executed.

An asterisk (*) stands for any host.


IBM Connect:Direct security depends on a key, similar to a password, in a IBM Connect:Direct server and an identical key in each API that will communicate with that server. The keys are defined and coordinated by the system administrator of the specific node or nodes, and should be kept secure.

Have the authentication keys you will use available during installation, but do not record them on this worksheet or anywhere else that could compromise security.
