Encrypting connection strings in QlikView
By default the connectors in the QlikView Qlik ODBC Connector Package scramble sensitive information such as credentials, certificates, and private keys. To increase security you can also encrypt sensitive information, using industrial encryption standards.
To encrypt the connections strings the system administrator must change the EnableCredentialEncryption setting in the configuration file QvOdbcConnectorPackage.exe.config from false to true, for each connector that needs to be encrypted. It is possible to enable encryption per connector.
Setting value="false" to value="true" allows you to enable encryption for that particular data source.
The QvOdbcConnectorPackage.exe.config file is located in the following locations for installations of QlikView: ...\Common Files\QlikTech\Custom Data\QvOdbcConnectorPackage
