Introduction: 

Using VM:Secure 's REVERSE encryption.

Question: 

Is there a way to decrypt a single user's password with REVERSE encryption?  

Answer: 

If using REVERSE encryption, we do have the VMXFEN03 utility that will decrypt, but it goes against the entire (live) database which would end up leaving

you with decrypted passwords.  Currently, we don't have a utility to show encrypted passwords in plain text for an individual user. 

Additional Information:

Information specific to Installing REVERSE or FORWARD encryption is documented in the VM:Secure Rules Facility Guide which can be accessed at:
