Projects config files security

Hello, I just installed Teamcity and I'm about to configure some projects.
My boss is wondering if the config file is stored in plain text and if not, if there is a way to encrypt it.

Tried to find the answer by myself in doc and community but couldn't.

Thank you for your time.

Hi Jeremy

Yes, most of the configs are stored in plain text files, and data in SQL database.
That's mostly a question how is your server secured at whole. If an attacker has access to a file system, encryption wouldn't help much.

Here was a related discussion how to secure credentials for production environments used within builds:

Feel free to ask any additional questions, maybe I miss something from your use case.
