What's the algorithm behind encrypting the SSL password?

I know that splunk.secret is used as the salt to encrypt SSL passwords. But what is the algorithm behind it?

I would like to encrypt passwords manually, without going through the splunkd restart procedure.

Hi Mika,

please open a support ticket to find out what would be the best option for you to proceed.

Hello,

I'm having the same issue. We're using Chef to deploy the SSL certs password and Chef keeps changing it to the clear-text.
If we knew the algorithm behind the hashing we could generate the salted password ourselves.
We don't have a Support Contract yet, so cannot submit ticket.

Thanks
Mikko
