Using encrypted connection strings in GMSC Configuration and DB Features



My client is using GMSC 2015 SP2 and has a specific security related requirement where all passwords stored/used in GMSC has to be in encrypted form.


Currently below two use-cases I could identify which is primarliy being used in the product configuration and application:

  1. GMSC Configuration database connection string stored in registry is in plain text
  2. For the Oracle Database features the connection string stored DATACONNECT column of RPI_FEATURE table is also in plain text


How can these connection strings or credentials be used in encrypted form?


Please let me know if there the product supports the same.
