First, a public/private key pair has to be created and subsequently installed in the F-Secure Elements Security Center and the scan node.

The keys are used to establish an encrypted communication channel between the F-Secure Elements Security Center and the scan node in question.

Note: The steps given here are for creating the encryption keys on Windows computers. However, the same openssl commands for generating the keys should also work on Linux systems.

    1. Download the OpenSSL toolkit for Windows at http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/openssl.htm.
    2. Extract the zip file.
    3. From the Windows command prompt, navigate to the bin directory inside the OpenSSL folder.

For example: cd x:\openssl-{version}\bin

    1. Generate a public/private key pair by running the following commands:

Generate the private key:

openssl genpkey -algorithm RSA -out private_key.pem -pkeyopt rsa_keygen_bits:4096

For older versions of OpenSSL, use the following command:

openssl genrsa -out private_key.pem 4096

Extract the public key:

openssl rsa -pubout -in private_key.pem -out public_key.pem
