dsetool managekmip expirekey

Expires encryption/decryption keys on a Key Management Interoperability Protocol (KMIP) server. Database stops using the key for encryption at the specified time and continues to use the expired key to decrypt existing data. Data re-keying is not required. Use this command to satisfy security policies that require periodically switching the encryption key.

DataStax recommends following best practices for key management permission policies. See <xref keyref="secEncryptKmipExternal"/>.

Syntax conventions Description


Literal keyword.


Not literal.


Variable value. Replace with a valid option or user-defined value.

[ ]

Optional. Square brackets ( [ ] ) surround optional command arguments. Do not type the square brackets.

( )

Group. Parentheses ( ( ) ) identify a group to choose from. Do not type the parentheses.


Or. A vertical bar ( | ) separates alternative elements. Type any one of the elements. Do not type the vertical bar.


Repeatable. An ellipsis ( ... ) indicates that you can repeat the syntax element as often as required.

'<Literal string>'

Single quotation ( ' ) marks must surround literal strings in CQL statements. Use single quotation marks to preserve upper case.

{ <key>:<value> }

Map collection. Braces ( { } ) enclose map collections or key value pairs. A colon separates the key and the value.


Set, list, map, or tuple. Angle brackets ( < > ) enclose data types in a set, list, map, or tuple. Separate the data types with a comma.


End CQL statement. A semicolon ( ; ) terminates all CQL statements.

[ -- ]

Separate the command line options from the command arguments with two hyphens ( -- ). This syntax is useful when arguments might be mistaken for command line options.

' <<schema> ... </schema> >'

Search CQL only: Single quotation marks ( ' ) surround an entire XML schema declaration.


Search CQL only: Identify the entity and literal value to overwrite the XML element in the schema and solrconfig files.


The user-defined name of the KMIP group that is configured in the kmip_hosts section of dse.yaml.


The key id on the KMIP provider.


After the specified date_time, new data will not be encrypted with the key. Data can be decrypted with the key after this expire date/time. Format of datetime is YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS:T. For example, use 2016-04-13 20:05:00:0 to expire the encryption key at 8:05 p.m. on 13 April 2016.


To immediately expire an encryption key:

dsetool managekmip expirekey kmipgrouptwo 02-540

Encryption for new data is prevented, but decryption with the key is still allowed. Because the expire date/time is not specified, the key is expired immediately.

To expire an encryption key at a specific date and time:

dsetool managekmip expirekey kmipgrouptwo 02-540 2017-04-13 20:05:00:0
