Passing Credentials in PowerShell between users and computers using keys
View Encryption of Credential with AES Key.ps1
## Create AES key with random data and export to file
Sometimes a script needs to use a password, but you want it stored securely. Passing a credential by utilizing 2 things:
1. A password file that contains the encrypted file
2. A key file that contains a randomly generated AES key
allows for utilization of credentials within scripts by different users and servers.
**The following method is only as secure as the locations of the files(password and key) themselves.**
You can’t perform that action at this time.
