Exporting a Private Key

If you have the private keys managed by the management console, you can download the private keys whenever you need. To ensure the security of the private key, keep the downloaded private key properly.


The private key has been managed on the management console.


A private key is encrypted and decrypted using the same encryption key. If the encryption key is deleted, the private key will fail to be exported.

  2. Click in the upper left corner of the management console and select a region or project.
  3. Click . Choose Security & Compliance > Data Encryption Workshop.
