Create Symmetric Key Wizard

New symmetric keys are created within Create Symmetric Key Wizard. In order to run the wizard you should either

 

select the Object | Create Database Object... main menu item;
select the Symmetric Key icon in the Create Database Object dialog

or

select the Symmetric Keys list or any object from that list in the explorer tree;
select the Create New Symmetric Key... item from the popup menu

or

open the database in Database Editor and the Symmetric Keys tab there;
press the Insert key or select the Create New Symmetric Key... item from the popup menu (alternatively, you may use the corresponding link of the Navigation Bar).

       

To create a new symmetric key with the same properties as one of the existing symmetric keys has:

 

select the Object | Duplicate Database Object... main menu item;
follow the instructions of Duplicate Object Wizard.

 

The basic principles of Create Object Wizards in MS SQL Maestro are explained in a separate topic. Below you will find a description of wizard steps that are unique for the current object.

 

To create a new symmetric key, define the encryption algorithm (possible values: DES, TRIPLE DES, RC2, RC4, DESX, AES 128, AES 192, AES 256) and specify the symmetric key encryptions.
