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.|
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.
- For details on enabling project encryption, see Projects and Solutions Page.
- For additional options for configuring password encryption in Service Virtualization, refer to the Service Virtualization Installation Guide.
