This documentation applies to a beta version of uberAgent (docs for the latest official release)

Username and Configuration Setting Encryption

uberAgent optionally encrypts user and domain names in the agent and has support to encrypt sensitive settings in its configuration.

User and Domain Names

Encryption

User and domain names can be encrypted in the agent before being sent off to the backend. This can be useful for compliance with privacy regulations.

User and domain name encryption is disabled by default. If required, enable it via the configuration setting EncryptUserNames.

With encryption enabled, user and domain names show up in the backend and in dashboards like this:

Decryption

uberAgent’s download package comes with the command line-tool uAEncrypt.exe, which can be used to decrypt usernames as shown in the following example:

uAEncrypt.exe -decrypt -keyId 101 -data <EncryptedDataHere>

Configuration Settings

Encryption

Sensitive settings like passwords can be encrypted with the command-line tool uAEncrypt.exe, which is available in the uberAgent download package. The syntax is viewable by running uAEncrypt.exe -h.

Some settings to consider for encryption:

  • RESTToken in the stanza [Receiver]
  • Password in the stanza [CitrixADC_Config]

To encrypt MySecretPassword:

uAEncrypt.exe -encrypt -keyId 1 -data MySecretPassword

Decryption

Decryption is possible with:

uAEncrypt.exe -decrypt -keyId 1 -data <EncryptedDataHere>
