    Using config.keystrokes you can add and remove keystrokes.

    From documentation:

    // Disable default CTRL + L keystroke which executes link command by default.
    config.keystrokes = [
        [ CKEDITOR.CTRL + 76, null ],                       // CTRL + L

    Replace the CKEditor.config.keystrokes with an empty array:

    CKEDITOR.config.keystrokes = [];

    Or CKeditor already offers a hotkey functionality (see the CKeditor documentation). Using this functionality we can bind keystrokes to CKeditor actions. In order to save, the following line should be added:

    CKEDITOR.config.keystrokes = ... [ CKEDITOR.CTRL + 83 /*S*/, null ], ...

    I see you have comments on both answers asking about applying changes to all CKEditor instances. The following code should allow you to override settings for all instances

    window.onload = function(){
        CKEDITOR.on('instanceReady', function (ev) {
            ev.editor.setKeystroke(CKEDITOR.ALT + 48 /*0*/, false);

    Every time a CKEDITOR instance is initialized and ready, it will automatically disable alt+0.

    There is a list of the ascii codes for the different characters here for reference if you want to disable other keys:

    Use the number in the Dec (decimal) column to disable they key in the Glyph column.
