On the System Keys window, you can manually rotate your PingFederate system keys to optimize your environment's security.

System keys are used in cryptographic operations to generate and consume internal tokens. These tokens are leveraged in multiple use cases such as one-time links for self-service password reset and email ownership verification. Periodic rotation ensures optimal security of your environment.

  1. Go to Security > Certificate & Key Management > System Keys.
  2. To rotate the system keys, click Rotate.
  3. Click Save.
PingFederate generates a new Pending key. The key that was Pending becomes the Current key. The key that was Current becomes the Previous key.
