Projects and Key DBs

Projects are groupings of key extraction work-flows. A sensor can belong to only one project. Projects allow you to easily manage deployments as they grow. You can add/remove/select projects from the ‘Project’ option in the main menu.

Set up a Private Key DB

A private key DB is automatically configured for each of your projects in a DynammoDB table hosted by Nubeva.

Tip

Nubeva TLS supports AWS, Azure and GCP. The key database is a DynamoDB table in AWS.

The project properties dialog indicates which DynamoDB table is being used. The figure shows that the table is in Nubeva’s account. To replace the default table with a table in your own account, click the Create Private Key DB button.

This step is not required for POC but recommended when you go to production.

Select the region and click Launch DB. This will launch a Cloud Formation template. The template creates IAM resources for writing and reading from the Key DB. Acknowledge that you allow these roles to be created:

When the template is done select the Outputs tab and click the URL in the field SendtoNubeva:

This operation navigates back to the home page of your current project and registers the encrypted credentials.

Note

If you delete the private Key DB, you can always create another. If you delete a private Key DB and do not create another, then sensors will no longer extract session keys.
