Question:

 

Currently the security team of the customer has concern about the agent encryption key. May I know what information will be passed between CAWA DE Server and Agent? Will the password information passed? 

 

Answer:

If the user is defined under the Topology/Agent/User category as below then the password is encrypted using the the key we provided with the Agent configuration while defining the Agent and the encryption method (DES).

We can see this in the receiver.log in the agent.
