SSO Configuration: Symmetric Folder and Keyczar

We are working on configuring SSO for our ThingWorx 9.0 deployment and are following the steps in the online documentation.  I've successfully configured SSO for earlier versions of ThingWorx (8.x), but I've never quite understood what is going on in this step, "Create the symmetric Folder":

https://support.ptc.com/help/thingworx/platform/r9/en/index.html#page/ThingWorx%2FHelp%2FComposer%2F... 

 

- Is this "metafile" we create in the ssoSecurityConfig directory supposed to have a specific name? 
- Are we supposed to use the "Keyczar" tool to do something?  

- Does the 'keyczarKeyFolderPath' parameter in 'sso-settings.json' need to be set to the directory (...\ssoSecurityConfig\symmetric) or is it supposed to be set to the actual "metafile" (...\symmetric\mymeta.file)?
- Should I worry about this step if we're not using OAuth tokens?

 

The steps aren't entirely clear.

Thanks
