NiFi Legacy KDF

  • The original KDF used by NiFi for internal key derivation for PBE, this is 1000 iterations of the MD5 digest over the concatenation of the password and 8 or 16 bytes of random salt (the salt length depends on the selected cipher block size).

  • This KDF is deprecated as of NiFi 0.5.0 and should only be used for backwards compatibility to decrypt data that was previously encrypted by a legacy version of NiFi.
