# This parameter specifies the character encoding used when password strings are
# hashed and written to the data store. In almost all cases, the data store will
# utilize the default encoding ("UTF-8"). However, if it is necessary to set
# this to another encoding, it can be done here.
# Allowed Values:
#   Any encoding (or "charset") supported by the JRE on which the RSA
#   RSA Access Manager Servers are run.
# Default Value:
#   UTF-8
