Problem:

Are "database" and "user login" passwords encrypted in SilkCentral Test Manager?

Resolution:

In SCTM the Database password that is found in Administration | System | Database tab is encrypted. The username is not.


The Database SQL login is encrypted in the SccDatabaseConf.xml file. This file is located in the following folder: (C:\PogramData\SilkCentral\SccDatabaseConf.xml) - see example below:-



true
MSSQL

The encryption type used for data in the SccDatabaseConf.xml file is "Triple-DES", which is a block cipher formed from the Data Encryption Standard (DES) cipher. For more information on Triple-DES, see the following KB Article:-


The SCTM user login password ( Administration | Users) is also encrypted and can be found in the “SCC_Users” database table.
