Datto RMM: How Are RDP Credentials Stored on a Device?

Question

How are RDP credentials stored on a device?

Environment

  • Datto RMM

Answer

The Agent Browser lets you save RDP credentials upon launching an RDP session to a device. These credentials are stored locally (in the user profile directory) to a device, and are not shared across different user accounts.

When stored, user credentials are encrypted. The encryption is coded within the agent and uses a combination of the following:

  • The Windows Data Protection API
  • Password-Based Key Derivation
  • The password-derived key is used with Triple DES
