The Key-File is an encryption key container that can hold up to 64 unique encryption keys.

These keys encrypt your computer, USB flash drive/hard drive, emails and files. The Key-File stores encryption keys, software settings, and organizational security policy.

The Key-File is important because it is unique to your computer and organization; it acts as an identifier to allow communication between devices and parties via the same encryption key.


Your ESET Endpoint Encryption Server administrator manages encryption key distribution for users.

The Key-File is encrypted with your ESET Endpoint Encryption user password.
