SASDFM key is used in eDirectory as Session Key to securely send data from a client to a server or server to 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 keys.

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.
