CA Advanced Authentication - Strong Authentication (AuthMinder / WebFort) CA Strong Authentication CA Rapid App Security CA Risk Authentication CA Advanced Authentication

Issue/Introduction

We use CA Strong Authentication, WebFort Authminder for Multi Factor Authentication in our Organization. As per company policy, we have to change the password length to be a minimum of 15 char. The current password that we use in our Non-Prod Arcot SQL Server Database doesn't meet this requirement. So we need your assistance to change this password since it's encrypted and stored in securestore.enc file. Thanks!

Environment

Release : 9.0

Component : AuthMinder(Arcot WebFort)

Resolution

To change the Database password please follow the below steps.

1. Run the DBTul tool from ARCOT_HOME/tools directory
2. ./DBUtil.exe -pd <DBUserName>
 This will remove the old password associated with the DB user.
3. ./DBUtil.exe -pi <DBUserName> <DBPassword>
 This will insert the new password in securestore.enc file.
4. Copy over this updated securestore.enc file to other servers or run the tool on other Strong Auth/ Risk Auth servers.
5. Restart the Strong Auth and Risk Auth and application server to connect to DB with the new password.
