Create Credentials

The first time you get credentials using the Eucalyptus Administrator Console, a new secret access key is generated. On each subsequent request to get credentials, an existing active secret Key is returned. You can also generate new keys using the command.

Each request to get a user’s credentials generates a new pair of a private key and X.509 certificate.

To generate a new key for a user by an account administrator, enter the following

euare-useraddkey USERNAME

To generate a private key and an X.509 certificate pair, enter the following:

euare-usercreatecert USERNAME
