Generating and retrieving the base station’s Public Key
For TPESaaS, the use of Public Key Authentication functionality is required to authenticate the base station’s access to ThingPark’s Key Installer and download its IPSec/TLS certificate.
The use of Public Key authentication is enabled by default in TPESaaS base station images, but it is not yet supported by TPEOCP. For more information, see Managing security access on base stations on a ThingPark Enterprise SaaS platform.
Follow the two steps below to generate the public/private key pair and retrieve the Public Key needed for base station provisioning:

To generate a new public/private key pair: choose Identifiers from SUPLOG’s root menu, then Generate new key pair.
Type “yes” and then Confirm.

To retrieve the public key needed for base station provisioning: Go back to Identifiers, then Get public key.
Important The Public Key retrieved at this step is needed when provisioning the base station on the TPW portal. Copy the Public Key generated including begin and end lines.
An error in the copy/paste of the Public Key would result in the fact that your base station will not be allowed to download its IPSEC certificates, hence would not connect to the network server.
Example of Public Key:
