Reset secure storage master key

The secure storage master key provides extra protection for the account details stored on XG Firewall. The key encrypts sensitive information, such as passwords, secrets, and keys, preventing unauthorized access.

Once the secure storage master key has been configured, you can reset it using this option on the CLI.

Note You can't restore backups taken using the old secure storage master key with the new master key.

The secure storage master key can only be reset using the default super administrator account.

To reset the secure storage master key, do as follows:

  1. Enter the default admin account password.
  2. Enter a new secure storage key.
  3. Reenter the new key to confirm.
  4. The secure storage master key is reset.
