How can the value in the "DefaultPassword" part of the registry be encrypted?
This registry key is located in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWAR
logon portion of the registry.
As you can see in the attached screenshot, my default logon password of "Password123" is visible to whoever browses to this part of the registry using regedit.
I need to have an entry in this "DefaultPassword" part of the registry so that my computer will automatically logon every time that the OS boots up.
The operating system is Windows Server 2008 R2.
How can I encrypt this password so that it won't be visible to whomever browses to this part of the registry?
