Encrypt the information about database connections in the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter configuration file

When you configure the source BlackBerry Configuration Database and the destination BlackBerry Configuration Database in the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter for Microsoft Office 365, information about the database connections is stored in the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter configuration file (EnterpriseTransporter.exe.config). If you select Microsoft SQL Server Authentication for a BlackBerry Configuration Database, the password information is stored in the configuration file in plain text (the password is not stored if you choose Windows authentication). You can modify the configuration file to encrypt the information that it contains about database connections.
Note: If you encrypt the information about database connections in the configuration file and you copy or move the configuration file to a different computer, you cannot decrypt the information about database connections on the new computer.
  1. On the computer that hosts the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter, navigate to <drive>:\Program Files (x86)\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server Resource Kit\BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter for Microsoft Office 365.
  2. In a text editor, open the EnterpriseTransporter.exe.config file. If your computer's operating system uses UAC and does not permit you to modify the configuration file at this location, open the virtualized copy of the EnterpriseTransporter.exe.config file in the application data folder for the current user (for example, <drive>\Users\<user_name>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Research In Motion\BlackBerry Enterprise Server Resource Kit).
  3. In the <appSettings> section, type the following: <add key="encryptConnectionStrings" value="true"/>.
  4. Save and close the EnterpriseTransporter.exe.config file.
Restart the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter.
