The obfuscation logic in IBM Security Verify Bridge (ISVB) relies on a hard-coded key to encrypt the client secret string. This means all ISVB users have the same encryption key. As of v1.0.5, ISVB has re-implemented its obfuscation logic so that each user gets assigned a unique key.
DESCRIPTION: IBM Security Verify Bridge contains hard-coded credentials, such as a password or cryptographic key, which it uses for its own inbound authentication, outbound communication to external components, or encryption of internal data.
