ID File Encryption Strength UI when changing to "No Password"


The goal is to change the Server ID File key encryption strength from 128 bit AES to 256 bit AES. We able to change it when adding a password. But when changing it to "No Password" the strength automatically changes to 128 bit AES.

Step to reproduce the issue:

1. In the Administrator Client, Go to Configuration Tab.
2. Tools -> Certification -> ID Properties
3. Select -> (You will notice that the ID File Encryption Strength is 128bit AES and SHA-256.)
4. Now, Click Change Password.
5. Select -> 256 bit AES and SHA-512 then Click "No Password"
6. Click Yes to confirm.
7. You will noticed that the ID file encryption strength is still at 128bit AES and SHA-256.
8. Now if you change again the password and put something in the password field and change the Encryption Strength to 256bit AES and click Ok. the ID File Encryption Strength will change to the desire Strength.

Explanation why this is happening:

Because we set the ID file to "No Password" the ID file will not use or apply any password key algorithm on it.

Enhancement Needed:

ID file encryption strength Field should be blank or should tell that it is not using any id file encryption strength to avoid confusion
