How does KNM store credentials?

This question has suggested answer(s)

I know that v5 requires SHA256 hashes to send passwords but does anyone know how the passwords are stored?  Encrypted? If so what is the encryption?

  • We have different usage scenarios, so some password are hashed, some are encrypted.

    User passwords (those you use when logon to the GUI) are hashed SHA-256

    Monitor credentials passwords are encrypted using AES-256 (counter mode) with a per installation generated key.

    Part from being encrypted on disk, all passwords are also encrypted while in memory, only being decrypted when they are used.
