In bug 834410 a developer can use a production key to simulate in-app payments. This bug is to introduce a new page in devhub where a developer can generate a key strictly for doing simulations (the key cannot be used for real payments).

This optimizes bug 834410 in the following ways:

- The developer doesn't have to store a production key on their dev server and thus enhances security
- The developer isn't *required* to submit an app or enter bank account details on the devhub in order to begin testing their in-app payment implementation
- The developer is not tempted to handle simulations on their production server because the key would be different
Priority: -- → P2
To clarify, this bug implies disallowing payment simulations from a production key. This would somewhat mitigate key theft. If someone steals a key that can do simulations then that person can get free stuff if the app server permits it.
