Secure Password Handling
Changing the Master Password
You can use Digital Event Services (DES) services to connect to password-protected systems. For example, you might configure DES to archive events in a database by using Digital Event Persistence services.
DES service configuration files need to contain a password to successfully establish a secure connection to systems that require password authentication. To protect these passwords, DES encrypts and decrypts passwords using a master password that is also encrypted. In a Software AG installation, all runtimes where DES is embedded use a single master password. The master password is stored in Software AG_directory /common/DigitalEventServices/security/passman.
Important: When you first install DES, the default master password is "manage". Software AG recommends that you change the default master password shortly after installing DES.
