RudderStack now supports Snowflake’s key pair authentication mechanism while setting up your Snowflake destination. You can now configure a key pair in Snowflake and use the private key for user authentication.

Snowflake’s key pair authentication mechanism leverages a 2048-bit RSA key pair and offers better security over basic authentication (username + password).

To use this feature:

  1. Set up a key pair in Snowflake.
  2. Toggle on the Use Key Pair Authentication setting in the RudderStack dashboard.
  3. Specify the private key.
  4. If the private key is encrypted, specify the passphrase used for encryption. Otherwise, leave it blank.

See the Snowflake destination documentation for more information on this feature.
