Password parameter in configuration file

Hi,

While using configuration files to provision the phone, Line authentication username and password is passed as plain text with the parameters,

reg.1.auth.userId="xxxx"

reg.1.auth.password="xxxx"



How can the password parameter be sent to the phone securely, as a hash or encrypted format which the phone will be able to understand?

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Re: Password parameter in configuration file

Hello asenthil,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

If the phone is connected to a secure provisioning server this should not be a problem.

 

In addition you can encrypt the configuration files. For more details check the Admin Guide of your currently yet unknown software version.

 

Please contact your Polycom reseller for more details.
