Credentials stored in the Orion Platform database are securely encrypted.




The Orion Platform database-stored credentials are encrypted/decrypted via PKI (see the details of the SolarWinds-Orion certificate). This certificate is shared among the primary poller and all scalability engines. Orion accounts use a salted hash (SHA512), where each account has its own hash. The algorithms are FIPS compliant.
