local password storage location in PA

 

In PA the username is part of the running config or local config of the PA right?

Where does local database or local password stored in PA?

@MP18,

Right. It's stored directly in the configuration file and loaded into memory when the firewall loads the running-config.

@MP18,

It's the phash value you can see when you look at the XML configuration. Anytime you supply your password the supplied password is hashed via the master key of the device and the hash is compared to the stored phash value.
