Backup up your key pair file

A key-pair file contains both the public and private keys used for SSL encryption. You will use the key-pair file when you request and install a certificate. The key-pair file is stored encrypted in the following directory: server_root/alias/<serverid-hostname>-key3.db.  

Whenyou create the key, you specify a password that you later use when you request the certificate and when you start a server that is using encrypted communications.
