When is the ELM key service terminated?

Here is the timeline:

  • August 2017: The new Knox Platform for Enterprise (KPE) license replaces both the:
    • Enterprise License Management (ELM) license: a license that grants apps the permissions to call APIs for free Knox features. ELM keys will undergo an End-of-Service.
    • Knox License Management (KLM) license: a license that grants apps the permissions to call APIs for paid Knox features. KLM keys will continue to work indefinitely.
  • November 2018: Samsung no longer generates new ELM or KLM license keys, providing only new KPE license keys.
  • January 29, 2021: Apps can no longer activate ELM license keys on new devices. Exceptions are ELM keys used:
    • with KLM keys to access paid features. KLM keys can be activated only in conjunction with an ELM (or Backwards Compatible) key.
    • with the Samsung India Identity SDK
  • December 2021: Apps can no longer activate ELM license keys on any new or existing devices.
