Compromised Auth API Keys

If you suspect or are sure that your auth API Keys have been compromised or exposed, you can regenerate or expire them.

How to regenerate or expire auth API Keys

  1. Log in to the Tatum Dashboard.

  2. Navigate to the [API Keys] section.

  3. Find the auth API Key(s) you have issues with.

  4. Access the [...] Menu.

  5. Regenerate or Expire:

    • Regenerate: This will replace the auth API Key with a new one. You will need to update the key anywhere it's used.
    • Expire: This will "expire" the auth API Key. This immediately stops anyone from using it. Virtual Accounts and Notifications are bound by auth API Key; they will stop working.

🚧

When regenerating the auth API Key, keep special attention to KMS since it requires a 1:1 match with the auth API Key that broadcasts transactions for signature.
