    Default Izpack - how to decrypt the password?

    When we encrypt the password in user input panel, how can we decrypt it in the application after installation?

    What methods/classes did you use for the encryption? Do they have a matching decryption methods/classes?

    Was using PasswordEncryptionValidator provided by IzPack. We got the problem when we tried to decrypt the password on Mac. The probable cause was that the key was generated randomly, which was pretty consistent in Windows environment for a particular algorithm, but not on others. Also, another reason could be the different encodings on these environments.

    Anyway, we found the workaround - that of using custom password encryptor (validator) class . This way, we could write our own algorithm to encrypt the password during installation and decrypt the same in the application.
