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.
