Using Symmetric Encryption

With symmetric encryption a single key will be shared for encryption and decryption of information. Even though, WSO2 Identity Server uses asymmetric encryption by default, you can switch to symmetric encryption.

Follow the steps given below to enable symmetric encryption.

  1. Open the deployment.toml file in the <IS_HOME>/repository/conf directory.
  2. Add the following configuration.

    The key = "value" property is used to specify the secret alias if secure vault has been used to encrypt the secret key.

    key = "value"
