Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Logon Manager


Users are unable to authenticate and decrypt their ESSO credentials from the repository after upgrading from on Windows 7 to on Windows 10. On the Windows 7 platform the ESSO-LM client is configured to use AES (256-bit) as the encryption algorithm for storing the credentials. On the Windows 10 platform, the ESSO-LM client is configured to use the default AES(MS-CAPI) algorithm.


Users that are upgraded from ESSO to are expected to be able to authenticate and access their ESSO credentials on Windows 10 after completing the upgrade.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Upgrade ESSO client from to on Windows 7
  2. Logon to Windows 10 platform and install ESSO
  3. Restart the Windows 10 and attempt to authenticate with the AD password in the ESSO Logon prompt.
