Encrypt Passwords

HPE recommends that you encrypt all passwords that you enter into a configuration file.

Create a Key File

A key file is required to use AES encryption. You can use this key file for password encryption, and you can use it in the SecurityInfoKeys configuration parameter to encrypt and decrypt IDOL Server security information.

CAUTION:

To keep your passwords secure, you must protect the key file. Set the permissions on the key file so that only authorized users and processes can read it. IDOL Server must be able to read the key file to decrypt passwords, so do not move or rename it.
