I am unable to generate the initial key for the Secure Store Service Applicaiton.  I receive a generic error indidating the "Generate Key" process failed.  I checked the ULS trace logs and found an error of "No windows identity found for <username>".   I am setup as a Service Application Administrator for the Secure Store Service Application.   I have also granted my user access to the Secure Store Database.  Any other suggestions on why I am unable to generate a Secure Store Service key?

when you initially created the secure store service application, did you create a new application pool? what account is that running as?

If you aren't sure, or you used the wizard to create the service application, I would recommend deleting it and creating a new secure store service application manually.
