MIM Sync Server Encryption. What's actually encrypted? RRS feed

  • Question

  • When you install the MIM Sync server, it prompts you to export an encryption key for the database. This lead me to believe that the MIM Sync database is encrypted. However when I open the database in SSMS and navigate to the metaverse table for example, I can see in plain text all of the values of the metaverse entries. So what is actually encrypted by the MIM Encryption Key?

  • Hi Dan-

    A couple things get encrypted:

    1. Secret type configuration parameters for MAs. MAs define what these are but passwords are the usual suspect.

    2. PCNS notifications that are queued in the database for re-processing.
