Use the encryption-settings tool to:

  • List the available definitions.
  • Create new definitions.
  • Delete existing definitions.
  • Indicate which definition is the preferred definition.
  • Export definitions to a file for backup purposes and to allow them to be imported for use in other PingDirectory server instances.

To list the available encryption definitions:

  • To display the set of available encryption settings definitions, use the encryption-settings tool with the list subcommand.

    This subcommand does not take any arguments.

    $ bin/encryption-settings list

    For each definition, the result includes the unique identifier for the definition as well as the cipher transformation and key length that is used for encryption and whether it is the preferred definition. See the following example.
