NCR saving passwords with MD5 hashing

L0 Member



was wondering if someone could tell me if there's a way of changing the hashing method when passwords are saved in Palo Alto. I can see from 2010 the method is MD5 and we are also dealing with an NCR stating the same, but I can't see anywhere this can be changed/updated? If this still the current default for storing Passwords in a Palo?


Any help appreciated.


Best Regards.

The hashing method can't be changed and is dictated by PAN-OS. 

Hello, Thank you for your answer.  Is there any official documentation that states this?
