Enhance security with encrypted passwords

Enhance security in your organizations by encrypting the passwords you provide when installing the product

You can now encrypt your passwords using the {xor} or {aes} encoding before launching the installation scripts. To encrypt the passwords, you run a simple script, then provide the encrypted output to the installation commands (configureDb, serverinst, and dwcinst) or save it to the properties files for each command and run the installation process using the properties files.

The encryption mechanism is based on WebSphere Application Server Liberty Base, therefore you have to install WebSphere Application Server Liberty Base before you start installing the product, if you plan to use encrypted passwords.

For more information about installing the product, see Typical installation scenario.
