Issue/Introduction

Is there a mechanism for retrieving the password after they are stored in ESP?

Environment

Release : 12.0

Component :

Cause

Customer forgot what PASSWORD was defined to ESP.

Resolution

Passwords are stored in the INDEX file. You can dump the index records using UTIL, see Reference Guide, However you cannot display the password as they are encrypted.

As of WA ESP Edition Release 11.4, all new passwords and updates to old passwords are encrypted using the AES 128 standard. Passwords that are created before WA ESP Edition Release 11.4 are encrypted using the DES standard.
