Checksum

No

SITs that have checksums use a unique calculation to check if the information is valid. This means when the Checksum value is Yes, the service can make a positive detection based on the sensitive data alone. When the Checksum value is No additional (secondary) elements must also be detected for the service to make a positive detection.

Definition

This SIT is designed to match the security information that's used as individual user passwords to authenticate against Azure Active Directory.

It uses several primary resources:

  • Patterns of Plain-text username and password for Azure AD tenants.
  • Patterns of Password context in code.
  • Patterns of Password context in XML.
  • Patterns of CredentialName, CredentialFeatures, AccountIdentityName, AccountIdentityValue, ResourceType, ResourceName.
  • Patterns of mockup values, redactions, and placeholders.
  • A dictionary of vocabulary.

The patterns are designed to match actual credentials with reasonable confidence. The patterns don't match credentials formatted as examples. Mockup values, redacted values, and placeholders, like credential type or usage descriptions, in the position where an actual secret value should present won't be matched.
