JMeter script to handle public-key password encryption

Hi - I am trying to setup monitoring for a website that seems to use password encryption in its http requests. It appears the encryption is based on a public key that is part of the response when you first access a site. Has anyone encountered this situation and handled it in a JMeter script. Can you share any recommendations?


Currently, as a workaround, I have a JMeter script with a hard-coded encryption which seems to work temporarily. When a reboot of the server hosting the website happens, the JMeter script no longer works, and would have to be recreated.
