Password parameter in configuration file


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



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.
