Managing the password is a program feature which allows you to store authentication data and to manage it. These data is compresses in the password file, using the Advanced Encryption Standard-Algorithm (AES) and then stored. In addition, the order of the data sets is chosen at random.
A public and a private key are used to encrypt the password. The public key is set by default and can be changed in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\O&O\O&O DiskImage\6.0. Please bear in mind that the key has to hold a value. An empty key will not be accepted. The private key is preset to a size of 64 Byte.
