Is eValid able to safetly secure any passwords in scripts

Postby JoshuaC » Fri Sep 28, 2018 3:17 pm

Afternoon.

Do you have a way of keeping passwords that are used in a script secure from prying eyes?

I have to sure that any logins are secured.

Thanks

Great question JoshuaC.

Indeed, a script that records a long will actualy extract the account name AND the password in plaintext, that is, human-readable form.

We didn't think it was safe to always encrypt every string...that would make scripts too hard to read.

So you have to encrypt (and obfuscate) passwords just after recording (or at any time, actually) using the script window dialog.

Here it the manual page for this.

The work YOU have to do is select (highlight) the strings in the recorded script that you want to hide.

Once you encode a string it will be decoded into plaintext automatically when it is needed in playing back the script.

Warning: Please do not edit the strings once encoded or you will not get a coherent playback.
