Get a license

Last updated December 21st, 2023

You can generate a license yourself for free products from the Knox Developer portal. Or you can buy Knox licenses from Knox license resellers for paid products.

To get a license yourself, you can either generate one or register one.

Generate a license

To generate a license key:

  1. Sign in to the Knox Developer portal.

  2. Go to License keys > My license keys.

  3. Click ACTIONS > Get a license key.

  4. Select the type of license key you want to generate:

    Type Ideal for use if…
    DEVELOPMENT KEY You’re testing your app.
    COMMERCIAL KEY You’re ready to deploy your app.
    BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE KEY The app you’re deploying is for Android devices running on Knox 2.7 or earlier, or for any Tizen device. Or if your license is legacy Knox Platform for Enterprise Premium, such as KLM03 or KLM06.
    VENDOR-UNIQUE ATTESTATION KEY You’re using the Knox Attestation REST APIs.
  5. Fill in the fields for your license key type, then click GET LICENSE KEY to open the Agreement dialog.

  6. Read the terms and select I have read and agree to the Reminder: Samsung Knox Partner Program SDK and license agreements if you agree.

  5. Name your license key in Alias. This is to differentiate between the multiple license keys that you may generate.

  6. Associate an app package — either an Android APK or Tizen TPK package — with your key:

    Note

    This is for security purposes, as only the associated app can activate the license key. The console extracts info about your app, but the app package itself isn’t stored.

    1. Select I, as a representative of my company, confirm the app I am about to upload belongs to us to verify that you’re authorized to identify the app that uses the license key.

    2. Click EXTRACT PACKAGE.

    3. Find your app package — APK for Android, TPK for Tizen — and click Open.

  7. Click REGISTER KEY.
