Console User Account Password and Login Security Updates

Console Updates to Use Encryped and Hashed Passwords (#13359)

Management Console user password security has been improved to prevent reverse engineering of passwords through the use of non-reversible algorithms and encryption. While providing a much higher level of password protection, once they are processed, user passwords cannot be retrieved from the system as a consequence, and can only be reset by authorized console users.

Installer Updates to Handle Converting Console User Passwords on Upgrade (#13360)

During the CyberStore's application upgrade performed by the installation program, all existing console user passwords will be processed and converted to the form required by the new authentication algorithm. This ensures that all console users may continue to use their existing passwords to gain access to the Management Console following the upgrade.
