You can use key hashes to verify keys between the Synergis™ key store and other units, or against the SAM card or key card production tool that produced the keys.

What you should know

Keys that have been saved in the Synergis™ key store cannot be retrieved, but they can be verified using key hashes.


  1. Log on to the Synergis™ unit.
  2. Click Configuration > Synergis™ key store.
  3. From the Hash list, select the algorithm used by the third-party card tool or Synergis™ unit:
    • KCV: Key Checksum Value
    • SHA1: Secure Hash Algorithm 1
    • SHA256: 256-bit version of Secure Hash Algorithm 2
    • SHA384: 384-bit version of Secure Hash Algorithm 2
    • SHA512: 512-bit version of Secure Hash Algorithm 2
    A 6-character (24 bit) key hash is displayed, regardless of the algorithm used.
