Generated 3DES Keys

A 3DES key generated from the configuration password is used to secure all sensitive information in the product’s configuration directory. With the exception of log messages, all messages to the Message Queue are encrypted with per-topic 3DES keys. Messages sent between connectors and subcomponents are encrypted with per session 3DES keys. The Directory Server Plug-in encrypts all user password changes with a 3DES key.
