Securely Store Password / Credentials?

Recommended Posts


So, one of the components for a script I'm writing might need to access other computers, not just Windows, some telnet, some VT100 emulated sessions, maybe some linux if I get bored .. in short a big batch of evil.

Clear text is bad.

Encrypting with an easily accessible key is bad.

Encoding in the code of the program bad.

Using a hash and a salt, storing the actual credentials in a secure database and using the hash to grab the credentials from said database .. one step away from bad.

I could go on.

The community's $0.02 is deeply appreciated.

This would run on a Windows system yet access others through LAN/WAN/Serial, just need a way to store the goodies.
