Datasource security encryption being followed

Helical Team,
GlobalConnections.xml contains data sources configurations and from what I see password is encrypted somehow.
Could you, please, elaborate how exactly is it encrypted?

Thank You,

Hello, from backend level this encryption of password is happening in order to not expose the actual password in physical files.

The algorithm which is used for this encryption is as below :

cipherAlgorithm = AES
cipherMode = ECB
cipherPadding = PKCS5Padding
cipherKey = HSpnzzfCLqrBn8Lk
