password encrypt method of local account



As I know ServerIron ADX have using default MD5 for encrypt local account password.
Does ServerIron ADX provide a SHA-256 method when encrypting local account?

Re: password encrypt method of local account

Hi Ryupan,


I am pretty sure that the ServerIron ADX only uses MD5 encryption for passwords, I am not able to find any information in any documents that would suggest that SHA-256 is a supported option


I hope this answers your question
