Abstract: In this era of digitisation, information security is of utmost importance. It is provided usually by PINs or passwords, whose security is very crucial in order to preserve data integrity. This paper explains insights on the multi-level security being implemented for the credential vault. Passwords in the system are stored as salted hashes. Database is then encrypted and then , the key for decryption would be stored externally. Also we aim to provide APIs for the system through which open source applications like Apache can make use of the authenticator to store credentials.
