I have set up a system account username and password to never expire so that the monitoring of the database would never fail. What security measures are used and available to protect this password?
The SSO (Single Sign-On) user password details are kept within the MDB; the MDB stores all the information for this. The SSO user information is secure and it is saved and encrypted uniquely to every portal user created.
Note: See the CA Database Management for Distributed Databases Implementation Guide for the setup of the SSO.
