Install Keys on the Client

You have already created the hashing key and encryption key to protect your data during the installation. To enable the client to decrypt the data transmitted from wanserver-1 during the installation, install these keys on wanclient-1.

On wanserver-1, display the key values.

wanserver-1# wanbootutil keygen -d -c -o net=,cid=010003BA152A42,type=sha1
wanserver-1# wanbootutil keygen -d -c -o net=,cid=010003BA152A42,type=3des

This example uses the following information:


Specifies the IP address of the client's subnet.


Specifies the client's ID.


Specifies the value of the client's HMAC SHA1 hashing key.


Specifies the value of the client's 3DES encryption key.

If you use an AES encryption key in your installation, change type=3des to type=aes to display the encryption key value.

At the ok prompt on wanclient-1, install the keys.

The following commands perform the following tasks:

ok set-security-key wanboot-hmac-sha1  b482aaab82cb8d5631e16d51478c90079cc1d463
ok set-security-key wanboot-3des  9ebc7a57f240e97c9b9401e9d3ae9b292943d3c143d07f04
