How are KeyID's generated?
|Resolution||If RSA Key Manager is configured to generate software based-keys (without using an HSM), keys are generated using a Java random number generator (JRNG).|
The key (software-generated or hardware-generated) is then hashed, salted and truncated to produce a unique Key Identifier (KeyID). If a collision occurs, this process is done until a valid KeyID is generated.
