Credentials for the LaunchKey API are based on items in the Admin Center. API credentials are based on an
entity (Organization, Directory, or Service) using the entity’s ID and a valid Public Key. These items are provided in
the Authorization credentials. More information on providing credentials can be found in
Authorization and Validation.
Rotation of Public Keys is part of the core security functionality within the LaunchKey API. The Admin Center
provides the functionality for migrating one or more Public Keys to another Public Key within a set of Public Keys.
Public Keys may have expiration dates and may be set inactive. This allows you to determine the rotation strategy
If your security model requires the use of separate credentials for different security zones or different hardware,
the LaunchKey API supports this functionality. LaunchKey API allows for multiple active Public Keys for the same entity.
The LaunchKey API provides a hierarchical structure to reduce the number of keys an application needs to manage by
providing the credentials for one the the entity’s ancestors when providing credentials. The details
of providing the credentials can be found in Authorization and Validation.
A scenario for using credential hierarchy is when an application suite with multiple applications requires segmented
authorization. You can create a separate Service for each application under a common Directory and use the credentials
from the Directory to perform authorizations.
