SASDFM key is used in eDirectory
as Session Key
to securely send data
from a client
to a server
or vice versa, NICI
provides the SASDFM keys which serve as a session key. Prior to NICI
3.0, the session keys were 3DES
NICI 3.0 supports AES 256-bit session keys, as well as 3DES keys, depending on the capabilities of the applications.
- The client application and the eDirectory server will use the AES 256-bit session key only if both of them use NICI 3.0.
- If either of them uses a lower version of NICI, they will use a 3DES session key.
