I’m building a website currently using Magento and I just had a question.

I looked through the Forums and didn’t see anything about it, but that\\\’s probably because the answer is obvious, but I’ll ask anyways.

How important is the Encryption Key? Let’s say that someone else has the key, and knew that it was for your website, what could they do with it?

On its own potentially it’s useless however if may be possible for someone to use it to in combination with access to your database to gain access to data.

These guys explain it as simple as it comes:
