You can use key hashes to verify keys in the Synergis™ key store against other units 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.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the Synergis™ Cloud Link unit.
  2. Click Configuration > Synergis™ key store.
  3. From the Hash list, select the algorithm used by the third-party card tool or Synergis™ Cloud Link 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
    In the Hash column, the 6-character (24 bit) key hash is displayed, regardless of the algorithm used.
  4. Verify that the key hash in the Synergis™ key store is the same as the key hash from the other units or the key card production tool with which you want to compare.
