Because the encryption-settings database contains the encryption keys used to protect server data, the contents of the encryption-settings database is itself encrypted. By default, the server will derive a key to use for this purpose, but it is recommended that you customize the logic used to access the encryption-settings database with a cipher stream provider. The Server SDK provides an API that can be used to create custom cipher stream provider implementations, but the server also comes with one that will obtain the key from a PIN file that you create (see the example procedure below).
