is the private key generated per installation or is it universal across all deployments?

AES doesn't have public/private keys, just a secret key is used for both encryption/decryption.

The server has an AES key it uses for encryption of cookies and for issuing host access tokens. This is generated per install.

The server also has an RSA publci/private keypair it uses for exchanging AES session keys. A new AES key is used for every connection. The RSA key is generated per install.

Everything is in the web.config file. If you lose these keys and have to reinstall, you'll have problems-- such as your unattendeds not working.
