Server Authentication Key File Worksheet

The initial server authentication key file is created during the installation procedure; however, you can update your key later. Use the information on this worksheet when you modify your key.

Parameter Default Value Value To Use
The host name on which the API 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 communicates with that server. The keys are defined and coordinated by the system administrator of the specific node or nodes, and should be kept secure. Be sure the authentication keys are available during installation, but do not record them on this worksheet or where they can be lost.
