SMTP Password encryption

[SMTP]

Server =

Port = 587

UseSSL = true

UserName =

UserPassword =

EmailFrom =

The user password field in SMTP configuration of pulse works with plain text password but due to compliance we cannot use it as it is. We need to configure it so that it can be encrypted. If we use pulse GUI to configure, it encrypts the password but we are not sure which cryptography it is using.

We have tried base64 encoding but it didn’t work. Let us know how can we encrypt the password as we use silent (Automated) installation.

Hi @shallabh.khera,

Are you wanting to enter the password directly to the file rather than through the UI?

Pulse uses triple des encryption for the password.
