Unattended password best practices

2 posts in this topic

I have not found any implementation or guidance on the AutoIT forum regarding best practices for passwords in unattended scripts.  More specifically, I have a lot of scripts that need access to the local PC Administrator account as well as remote servers, databases, etc.  To date, I have basically included the passwords in the scripts, but really don't like doing that.

Does anyone have some specific guidance, or -- better yet -- an example of a more secure way of saving these passwords in a more secure manner?

I would prefer a truly free, open source or native Windows solution.

Thanks in advance.
