Step 1: Create the local private key

Edge for Private Cloud v4.19.01

Each node must have its own version of a local private key.

To create a private key for a node, execute the following command on each node:

openssl genrsa -out KEY_FILE KEY_SIZE


  • KEY_FILE is the path to the key file you want to create.
  • KEY_SIZE is the number of bytes for the key. Apigee recommends that you use either 4096 or 8192.

For example:

openssl genrsa -out local_key.pem 8192

This command creates an RSA private key file named local_key.pem which has no public key component.
