Understanding SEAP license keys

Samsung Enterprise Alliance Program provides developers with SDKs and access to proprietary device features designed to help solution providers create richer and more secure solutions.  To develop and commercialize solutions leveraging these resources, license keys are needed.

License keys - for security

Your apps provide a developer-specific license to identify yourself. Our servers authenticate that you have permission to access the licensed APIs. Should your license become compromised, we can revoke it, and any deny access to the licensed APIs.

Examples of these licenses are:

  • REST API key —which developers use in REST API calls to cloud servers like the Samsung Enterprise Gateway and Attestation server.
  • ELM (Enterprise License Management) key — which larger companies use with enterprise-grade SDKs like Knox Standard, Knox Premium, Knox Customization, and Samsung EDU.
  • ISV (Independent Software Vendor) key — which freelance developers use with smaller SDKs like Knox ISV and India Identity.

License key types

Development – While you are still developing your app, you use this license key. A development key has an expiration date – for those signed up as a ‘Developer’ these keys expire after 3 months for all SDKs.  For those signed up as ‘Partners’ all development license keys expire after 6 months, except for the KLM key needed for Knox Customization, which is valid for 3 months.

Production – When you are ready to release your app commercially, you use this license key. For:

  • ELM and ISV — You can get production keys through this website. If you are still registered as a SEAP developer, request an upgrade to partner status to access production ELM licenses. With production licenses, the licensing agent on a device verifies with a web-based license server that you are allowed to use the called APIs.
  • Knox license key (KLM) — As a developer, you don’t need production KLM keys. It is up to your app’s end users to pay for premium Knox services, by buying licenses through Knox resellers or the Global Samsung Business Network.
