Password encryption

The following adapters can use an encryption-type attribute with the <password> element:

  • SSH
  • Kerberized SSH
  • Telnet
  • SCP
  • FTP
  • SFTP
  • Windows Command
  • PowerShell
    You can use the encryption-type attribute in the adapter configuration or in a dynamic target in an adapter request. If no encryption-type is specified, the value is considered to be unencrypted (plain).

    The encryption-type value is not case sensitive. The valid values for encryption-type are Base64 and plain.

    The following figure shows an XML sample of an SSH dynamic target using the Base64 option with an encrypted password.
