How can I store a password in SalesLogix VB source code without security concerns??

Question:

I am using Architect and I need to pass in a username and password in my VB Source code to mount a network directory. Is there any way I can protect the password in the source code? Otherwise anyone has the access to the source code will see the password. It is a big security concern.

 

Can anyone give me any help?

 

Answer:

There may be several options on how to do this:

a) Don’t store it, prompt for it. Although a bit tedious for the User to have to Input this information over and over, this may be the best approach (from a Security Stand Point).

b) Store it on a Table and use Encryption (you may have to build your own Encryption routines)
