- FIPS 140–2 mode: Specify AES_FIPS.
- Non-FIPS 140–2 mode: Specify either AES_FIPS or AES. Use AES (the default) only if you need to maintain compatibility with passwords that were encrypted using the tools provided in versions earlier than Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus V7.2.1.
key_fileis the file path and name of the key file. This value must match that specified for the ConfigKeyFile property in the properties file.
string_valueis the user name or password that you want to encrypt.
The output is displayed in the console window in encrypted
