Encryption

Last update: Edit

1 Introduction

The Encryption module takes care of the encryption of strings (for example, passwords) using AES.

1.1 Typical Usage Scenarios

The typical usage scenario is when a project/module consumes a service where a user name and password are required, you can store the password in an encrpyted way in the database. The key used for encrypting passwords is configured as a constant and remains on the application server.

1.2 Limitations

  • Encryption using AES only

2 Configuration

Set the EncryptionKey constant located in the Private - String en/de-cryption folder. Make sure the key consists of 16 characters.
