Key Pair

Vizzly Key-pair

Keeping your data, and your customer's data secure is our highest priority. With this in mind, we use elliptical curve certificates to sign and verify an identity config to control data and dashboard configuration access.

Create the key pair

Vizzly provides a CLI tool, that allows you to generate the required certificates. After installing and authenticating the CLI tool by following the instructions on this page (opens in a new tab), run the command

vizzly create-key-pair

You'll see the private and public certificates written to your current working directory.

The next step is to upload the public key to the organisation key pairs page (opens in a new tab). You can do this by using the CLI command;

vizzly upload-public-key

Private key usage

You will use the private key to sign the identity config on your servers. To securely load the private key onto your servers, you can make it available through an environment variable.
