We've a requirement to secure certain passwords and userIDs. These can't be in config files. Wanted to know if Sitecore has any tools or any best practices defined for such data storage? Any keystore system which can be used?
If User/password is huge counts and users are not related to sitecore sites
You have to handle with custom implementation. I have a similar requirement to manage users with sitecore system.
My github project have the end to end user management functionality. User sign- up/login/Reset-password/Authenticate user/JWT token issuer functionality.
Reference git project : https://github.com/andiappan-ar/sitecore-bugger/tree/master/SitecoreBugger
C#-UserManagement modules: here
SQL mdf/script files : here
If User/password is huge counts and users are related to sitecore sites
- Why you cant handle with sitecore user management it self ? Save the users with custom domains. Validate the users by sitecore APIS. Don't add any roles to the users , unless it requires.
If User/password is very less counts below 10
