Quick question more for informational CYA than anything else (I.E., I don't want to do this, I just want to make sure it can't be done).
Is it possible to read (in clear text) or decrypt the password for an encrypted database key from the Windows Server registry?
I know people try to do this all the time (find passwords for things that they shouldn't have access to) and a quick Google search doesn't come up with any links. So I'm posting here in hopes someone can give me the warm fuzzy "No" that I'm looking for. Or to warn me that "yes, it can be" so I can go back to my peeps and look for a solution to lock down this particular hole if it exists.
