Password Encryption

You can encrypt sensitive data stored in Service Virtualization, such as passwords stored in agent configuration files or in the Service Virtualization Credential Store.

Service Virtualization encrypts data using a password that you provide. You can enable password encryption by defining an encryption password for the following application components:

Service Virtualization Server encryption During server installation, you can select the server encryption option, and define a password to use for encryption. The password is stored for the Windows system account user, and used for all server encryption.
Designer/Embedded Server encryption During Designer installation, or if you are running the Designer for the first time, you can define a password for encrypting sensitive information stored in the server. Each Windows user running the Designer can define an encryption password, used to encrypt their own data and configuration information.
Project encryption

You can define a password for encrypting virtualization projects. When you export a virtualization project and a .vproja project archive file is created, the project is encrypted using the encryption password. For other users to open the exported project, you must provide them with the encryption password.
