As ISEC regulations getting stronger we need to strengthen the authentication Qlik Replicate uses to connect to Snowflake. At the moment the only supported authentication method is username / password. However this will in our orangization be not longer allowed and I guess other companies also strugle with that. It could lead to a complete stop of use of Qlik Replicate in our Organization.
Snowflake supports two stronger authentication methods. Oauth and (RSA) Key Pair.
From our perspective Key Pair authentication would be a good alternative for technical integrations like Qlik Replicate.
The implementation on Qlik side should be pretty straight forward. The only thing that needs to be changed is some configuration fields in the datasource configuration dialog and when conncting some other properties need to be passed to the Snowflake driver.

OAuth might be even better, but needs definetly more development effort.
