Can you provide information on the encryption algorithm and key used for encrypting WiFi passphrase storage in Windows 10? I am attempting to gain understanding on this topic.

Upon examination of the XML file located at C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Wlansvc\Profiles\Interfaces{INTERFACE UUID}, it appears that the stored passphrase is protected by an encryption method. However, I am unable to determine the specific algorithm and key used as it is not the user’s password, and all users have access to it.
