Goal

Procedure to encrypt security database password in Oracle Traffic Director.

When saving the NSS database password in server.xml file such as:

# otd_home/bin/tadm set-token-pin --user=admin --config=test --token=internal --save-pin=true

You will notice the password is not encrypted inside the server.xml file:

<pkcs11>
<token>
<name>internal</name>
<pin>password</pin>
</token>
</pkcs11>


Using standard file permissions to protect the file may not be adequate depending on the security policy.
