Get Origin CA keys

Origin CA keys are often used as the value of header X-AUTH-USER-SERVICE-KEY when interacting with Origin CA certificates API. It is also used by Keyless SSL key server.

The key value always starts with v1.0-.

​​ Limitations

  • Changing the Origin CA key is not recorded by Audit Logs.
  • Each time you view the Origin CA key, it will be presented as a different value. All these different values are simultaneously valid until you click the Change button, which immediately invalidates all previously generated values.
  • Origin CA keys have access to every account the user has access to.
