# Encrypted key/config storage

Encrypted key/config storage enabled by default. The default encryption algorithm is stronger than the “Default JCE Policy” used in earlier versions of Java.

Note: If you receive an error message about encryption policy strength with creating projects or keys you will need to upgrade your Java version, or set the encryption algorithm in rundeck-config.properties to a lower strength algorithm such as PBEWithMD5AndDES

Further information about encrypted key/config storage on this link.
