Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I noticed that when I generate live installer it has proxy settings, which I`ve set in server settings, and I can see login and password as a text.

Is it possible to encrypt these settings?

 

Because now all users know my pass :)

Problem is that there is no secure way how to prevent user from extracting this kind of information from installer - the same applies also for ERA specific parameters (certificate, ...). We can obfuscate this information so that it is not easily visible, but that would also complicate modification of installer script and skilled attacker will be able to extract sensitive information.
