Message Level Encryption Key Rotation

Hi Everyone,

I have a question about MLE key rotation. How long is the old key good for? I want to distribute the installer with the key far and wide but want to enforce MLE from first check in but don’t want to have to distribute a new installer every time i rotate my keys? I was wondering if the old keys would continue to work for first check in for the clients to grab the new keys.


If you rotate your keys and the installer is wrong it will quickly be updated by the client gathering the actionsite and getting a new masthead. The keys being wrong merely prevents the client from being able to report, not gather.
