Table 1. Key set buttons

Button Resulting action
New Adds a new key set.
Delete Deletes an existing key set. Make sure the key set is not referenced by a key set group before deleting it.

Key set name

Specifies the key set name used to select the key set from a key set group and from runtime APIs.

Key store

Specifies the key store that contains the keys for storage, retrieval, or both.

Key alias prefix name

Prefix for the key alias when a new key is generated and stored in a key store. The rest of the key alias comes from the key reference version number.

For example, if the alias prefix is mykey and the key reference version is 2, the keystore references the key using alias mykey_2. If the key reference already has a specified alias for a key already existing in the keystore, this field is ignored.
