need help on certificate authority and Gossip Encryption Keys


xiaoshan fang
 

I am created certificate authority and Gossip Encryption Keys for cf-stub.yml. I am following the steps on http://docs.cloudfoundry.org/deploying/common/consul-security.html#rotating-certs.

1. At the first step 1 of Security Configuration section, I got a folder named consul-certs, and 9 files (agent.crt., etc). all the files are encrypted. the content like:

MIIEJjCCAg6gAwI
2. the step 2: Create Gossip Encryption Keys. I donot understand the text.

I have two questions here:

1. how to generate the Gossip Encryption Keys?
2. In the 3rd step, can I just copy the encryped content to cf-stub.yml?

Thanks,
