In Influx OSS 1.8 are the stored passwords for users encrypted internally?


I wanted to check if the passwords for users are stored encrypted internally ( version 1.8 OSS ) ?
I see that bcrypt is the default in enterprise version 1.8 . Is it the same in the open source version ?

Thank you

Hello @neelaksh,

Hello hmm you know more than me…
yup you’re right about enterprise:

Here’s what I can find on security for 1.x:

You’re right, bcrypt is a common encryption method for passwords. While it’s known that the Enterprise version of InfluxDB 1.8 uses bcrypt, the information for the OSS version isn’t explicitly confirmed in those links.

Hmm let me ask around.

Hello @Anaisdg , any luck in your search ? Thanks again for asking around.
