Configuring passwords and encryption mechanisms

To improve the application security, define a security policy for user passwords. You can also configure passwords and encryption mechanisms for the keystore in which the passwords are stored, and the BigFix Inventory database.

BigFix Inventory stores the encrypted passwords in its database in a password-protected keystore on the local storage (unless Windows Authentication is used for database access). It is recommended to change the default keystore password, and configure encryption mechanism for the keystore, and the BigFix Inventory database to ensure additional protection.
