This topic tells you how to configure Lockbox Security Settings.
What Is a Lockbox
A lockbox is an encrypted file that you use to store confidential information about an application. The NetWitness Suite Lockbox stores an encryption key for the Log Collector .
The encryption key is used to encrypt all event source passwords and the event broker password.
When you create the Lockbox, you need to define a password for the Lockbox.
TheLog Collector operates the Lockbox in a mode during data collection that does not require you to specify the password (theLog Collector uses the host system fingerprint instead).
These are the lockbox security settings.
Set Up a Lockbox
To set up a lockbox you need to set a password, as follows:
- Go to ADMIN > Services .
- Select a Log Collection service.
- Under Actions, select > View > Config to display the Log Collection configuration parameter tabs.
Click the Settings tab.
- In the options panel, select Lockbox to configure Lockbox settings.
- Under Lockbox Security Settings, enter a password in the New Lockbox Password field and click Apply.
