What is the algorithm used and the level of encryption (128 bits, 256 bits ....) of the password saved into the SilkCentral Test Manager database (for example SQL Server)?


The password for SilkCentral Test Manager user accounts when NOT USING LDAP is based on the UNIX crypt command with 8 characters taken into consideration. However, where possible, we recommend to use LDAP authentication instead of proprietary SilkCentral Test Manager user authentication. Other passwords like the password for the account to access the database are Triple DES encrypted with a 256 bit key.
