<title>Generating User Credentials</title>
<p>You can generate new credentials a number of ways. The first time you get credentials using
either the Dashboard or the <cmdname>euca_conf</cmdname> command, a new secret access key is
generated. On each subsequent request to get credentials, an existing active secret key is
returned. You can also generate new keys using the <cmdname>eucare-useraddkey</cmdname>
command. </p>
<note type="tip">Each request to get a user's credentials either via the download
link in the Dashboard or using euca_conf, a new pair of a private key
and X.509 certificate </note>
<cmd>To generate a new key for a user by an account
administrator, enter the following</cmd>
<codeblock>euare-useraddkey -u &lt;user_name></codeblock>
<cmd>To generate a private key and an X.509 certificate pair, enter the following:</cmd>
<codeblock>euare-usercreatecert -u &lt;user_name></codeblock>
