Set Password Encryption Method

By default, CommonSpot does not encrypt passwords stored in the various Users databases. If your site has a custom ColdFusion encryption module, this utility lets you use it as the encryption method for passwords managed by CommonSpot. Note that the encryption method applies to all Users databases on the server, and all other CommonSpot servers that share data through replication.

Review the notes contained in this dialog, noting the default module path. Enter the directory location of an existing encryption module and click Run Utility to activate your custom encryption method, or click Close to exit without changing. If necessary, restart ColdFusion on Read-Only Production Servers in your environment.

Note: You can find more information on integrating a custom encryption module in the Login Events sections within the CommonSpot Developer's Guide.
