CRM 2013 Data Encryption

What it does ?
  • CRM 2013 uses SQL field level encryption for a set of default entity attributes that contain sensitive information, such as passwords stored in the CRM Database.
  • Data encryption prevents a database administrator from accessing encrypted data. The password fields for the following entities are encrypted: 
      • Queue
      • Mailbox
      • User Settings
      • EmailServerProfile
      • Yammer token

  • Encryption is currently limited to some out of the box password fields.  It is not currently possible to extend this encryption feature to additional fields.
  • Data Encryption once activated cannot be deactivated.
  • Encryption feature cannot currently be extended to additional fields.
