Password store file

The following commands are used to create and manipulate CE password store files within the securityconfig tool. CE password store files managed though this interface are never password protected. For more information on the securityconfig tool, see Configuring Security with Securityconfig.

To create a new password store file, run the pwdfile create command:

pwdfile create 
-file <password store file> 

To manipulate secrets (passwords), which are associated with a name (alias), run the pwdfile secret command:

pwdfile secret 
-file <password store file> 
{-set | -delete} -alias <alias>

If the user specifies the -set option, the user is prompted for a new password for the specified alias and required to verify the new password.

If the -delete option is specified, the alias is deleted from the store.
