Hello all,

Could someone give me some more details on the methods used to
encrypt the user data and password in TortoiseSVN version 1.1.0?

I have a requirement to secure the password based on a pilot of an earlier
I want to explain the method to my security section
before downloading Tortoise for version 1.1.0.

Thanks in advance,

Caroline Weller.


The change log for Version 1.1.0 RC1 states

>- ADD: On Win2k and later, the authentication data is now
       encrypted before saved. The encryption is not available
       for the other OS's. (Stefan)

and I foudn this in the mailing list when 1.1.0 was released:
