Deploying multiple encryption plug-ins
In some cases, you need to use an encryption mechanism other than the Data Source Explorer default in your report application. For example, some applications need to create an encryption mechanism using the RSA algorithm that the default encryption plug-in supports. In this case, you must create an additional encryption plug-in instance. For use within Actuate BIRT Designer, you can set this plug-in as the default encryption mechanism. If you change the default encryption mechanism, you must take care when you work with old report designs. For example, if you change an existing password field in the designer, the designer re-encrypts the password with the current default encryption algorithm regardless of the original algorithm that the field used.
