If you have used the AD connection to get user list and other details, then all password resides on AD server.

QlikView Doesnt store any password. It just uses the LDAP protocol to authenticate the users from AD.

Hi Kaushik,


We are not using AD details . NTFS Authentication we are using

It is the normal Organization based domain login username and password we use to get to Qlikivew Access Point.

In this case which password encryption methodology being used.

Can you please advice?

Re: What is the encryption used for the passwords?

Dear Avinash,

As you said your organization uses the normal Domain login username and password.

This is nothing but the AD. All users and password gets created on domain.

What QlikView does is when he gets username and password from login page, it sends that to AD to authenticate, AD then replies with the token if the username and password is right. depending on the reply from AD qlikview allows the login.

So in this process, QlikView do not store any password any where.
