US View Profile Send Message SylSchinco_GCS PEGA replied to Dev_Pattanaik In the 7.2.2 release, we made bcrypt - the current 'gold standard' in one way hash algorithms - the default. This was released December 2016. https://community.pega.com/knowledgebase/using-bcrypt-hashing-algorithm-password-property-types In 7.1.7, we made SHA-256 and SHA-512 available: https://community.pega.com/knowledgebase/release-note/password-hashing-using-sha-256sha-512 You should consider upgrading the application to take advantage of these and other security features and updates in the most recent versions. The current version is 8.3.
