Just wondering if you guys have an idea on what type of password encryption does Splunk DB connect app used to secured the database password.
I was wondering the same thing as this is being asked by my internal security team.
If I remember correct AES is being used, using this cipher: $SPLUNK_HOME$/etc/auth/splunk.secret
As soon as I find a reference I will give you an update.
