When upgrading from older versions of WebLogic Server that used old security algorithms, it can be observed that encryption hashes are passed through without any change. In this case, in order to enhance security, it may be recommended to recreate related files to impose newest security algorithm available.

Is it possible to use Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm to encrypt WebLogic Server 10.3.x passwords in "config.xml" when encrypted values show a {3DES} header?
