What type of encryption do we use to encrypt our passwords in the vyoptacollector.xml file?
Any passwords we encrypt with the CPM-Admin portal or the encryption tool in the Next Generation Data Collector will encrypt with AES 128. To encrypt the password in the vyoptacollector.xml file, you will need to take the password from the XML file and run the following command with the Next Generation Data Collector in a command window:
vyoptacollector.exe -encrypt <yourpassword>
Vyopta’s data collectors send data to the Vyopta CPM platform using TLS 1.2 and 256-bit AES for encrypted data transfers. Keys are stored in separate locations and are rotated frequently. Additionally, all sessions to the Vyopta admin portal require HTTPS protocol with TLS 1.2.
