Issue/Introduction

While using DB2 database connection in FDM, it is unable to retrieve encrypted password from connection file and gives the error error "The password decryption failed, you must enter it manually" as in below screenshot.

This is happening when using additional parameter string to enable CryptoProtocolVersion=TLSv1.2; However, this is not the case if CryptoProtocolVersion=TLSv1.2; is not provided and kept it blank.

Steps to Reproduce:
. In FDM--> DB2 Connection-->Additional Parameter field add the below parameters and password is saved to the file.
sslConnection=true;sslTrustStoreLocation=C:\Program Files\Grid-Tools\FastDataMasker\.truststore;sslTrustStorePassword=CAdb2cert1234!;CryptoProtocolVersion=TLSv1.2;

. Then select different connections and select the DB2 connection again then getting the error "The password decryption failed, you must enter it manually" as in below screenshot.
