Encrypting Passwords in the Properties File

Encrypting Passwords in the Properties File

The installer includes a utility that you can use to encrypt passwords you set in the properties file you use to specify options when you run the installer in silent mode. Informatica uses AES encryption with multiple 128-bit keys to encrypt passwords.
You run the utility for each password you want to encrypt. When you run the utility, you specify the value of the password in plain text at the command prompt. The utility generates the password in encrypted format as output. The output includes the following prefix:
=INSTALLER:CIPHER:AES:128=
Copy the complete output string, including the prefix, and then paste it into the properties file as the value for the password property. When you run the installer in silent mode, the installation framework decrypts the password.
  1. Go to the utility directory:
    <Installer directory>/properties/utils/passwd_encryption
  2. Run the utility. Specify the plain text password you want to encrypt as the value for <password>.
    • On Linux and UNIX, run the following command:
      sh install.sh <password>
    • On Windows, run the following command:
      install.bat <password>
  3. Copy the encrypted password string from the output, and then paste the string into the .properties file as the value for the corresponding password.
    The following example shows the encrypted password set as the value for the DOMAIN_PSSWD property:
    DOMAIN_PSSWD==INSTALLER:CIPHER:AES:128=mjkjmDR2kzFJiizfRWIOPg==
